Todd – Any chance of adding a Paul D. Brazill novel to today’s list. It is a book that is not old and probably not forgotten but perhaps overlooked? Thanks.

Todd Mason said...

I think I could stand the strain, Elgin...thanks.

Elgin Bleecker said...

Thank you! And thanks for doing the list and helping Patti.

Jose Ignacio Escribano said...
