I just finished ~Vanished At Sea~ by Dirman.  I don't know if anyone has it on their wish list but I am not going to post it until Monday because I can't get to a post office until then and I like to mail my books out the same day as requested.  ( feeling sickish today)  Anyway..you know I read so many true crime books that I rarely get that emotionally involved in the stories but I was bawling by the time I finished this one today.  It's about this sociopath that kills this couple on their yacht..really a heart wrenching story for me.  It's a small book but I liked this author.

I just finished The Hot House - Inside Leavenworth Prison by Pete Early.  It was written in 1989, but I doubt conditions for the inmates have changed much since then.  I'm now really interested in Thomas Silverstein.  He is being treated like Hannibal Lector.  I looked him up on the web and he has since been transferred to the new federal prison in Arizona.
