Well, other than the Stieg Larsson books. I confess I haven't read any of these. Have you?

I read Faithful Place by Tana French. Enjoyed it! Now I need to go back and read French's first two books.

I have the Tana French book here but I haven't read it yet.  Frankly, I find a list with Grisham on it suspect. Pfft.  Just me, probably.

I've heard pretty good things about Grisham's newest book, but I haven't given it a try. I bet my mother will be reading it. I'll ask her for her opinion.

Not a big fan of Tana French and have not read the others. Saw a few in the bookstore.

The only ones I read are the Stieg Larssons and actually I only read the first two, not Hornet's Nest, which is the one they mentioned...the second one in that series will be on my Ten BOTTOMS list for the year. I have the Tana French one here but not read it yet. Other than that, nope.

LeeAnne...nope, I agree. I saw the Stieg Larsson mention, and then the Grisham and went...well, maybe I *won't* check out those other authors that I've never heard of. LOL

I've read the entire Millenium series by Larsson and Faithful Place, but I agree with LeeAnne and Cheryl. When I saw Grisham, it was an "eh" reaction for me.

I've read the Tana French book and the Millenium trilogy.  Interesting that two of the others are connected to WWII.

As for The Sleepwalkers, my mother grew up in Germany in that era (although thankfully not in the Weimar), and did know someone named Willi Kraus.

There is also a Willi Kraus in Greg Iles The Black Cross, awesome historical mystery.
