This book contains stories which bring back those earlier, simpler times when respect, honor, and being your brother's keeper were normal and how friendships between people of different backgrounds were possible. Sean Patrick wrote these stories for the Catholic Digest and I subscribed to it just to read them. I LOVE his writing, which often brought me to tears. Heart-warming! You won't be sorry to read this one.
An easy and enjoyable read. I read it in one sitting because I liked it and couldn't wait to see what happened. The detective is Masao Masuto and he brings his Zen Buddhist background into his work. This reminds me of Sherlock Holmes/Watson or Hercule Poirot/Hastings genre.
Joe Grey is a cat who learns that he can understand and speak. He witnesses a murder and for some strange reason, the killer recognizes something about him and tries to kill him, too. Joe eventually meets another cat who has the same "problem" and is also pursued by the same killer. It was a fun and entertaining story.
Sequel to the "Ghost in Tokaido Inn," which is the winner of many awards. I read it in one sitting. It's very light reading. Someone is murdering geishas and setting fires and Seikei and Judge Ooka are once again on the trail of a murderer.
This is a very inspiring account of people who made the transition from life to death. Written by a hospice nurse in short, concise stories. Nothing macabre here. Very good read. Sorry I can't post it just yet. It is making the rounds among my friends.
Retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrella, she is every inch an eccentric English spinster and at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection.
Could not get into this book as quickly as other James Patterson books, but the action picked up along the way. Can't say it's one of my favorites. But it is a study in how far a person will go to save him/herself and you feel the pressures Lauren, the main character, goes through. In addition, there is a message that you never know what a person is really like.
