CIA and Turing code secret
Simple Genius - David Baldacci

Michelle is a bit suicidal. 

 

Sean is trying to help so he get her into a psy ward. 

 

Monk Turing died and it was at first ruled as suicide. 

 

Viggie is the daughter of Monk and is smart but also a person need help.

 

Sean go at it alone and go to a Baggage Town where Viggie lives to investigate the killing. 

 

Another person got killed while he was there and someone shot at him.

 

Things got interesting. 

 

Michelle has some suppressed memories when she was 6. 

 

The third of the book is all about relationship between Sean and Michelle and how they recovered from where they were mentally before. 

 

There are really good moments that is between Michelle and Veggie, the bonding thing. 

 

Sean is just trying to do his best under not so ideal circumstances. He does not work well when Michelle is not there watching his back. 

 

And there are some other key players Champ, and Whitefield and Valarie. 

 

And it is about a secret long ago. 

 

The revealing part goes pretty fast once Sean got the clues. 

 

The CIA camp is doing something secretive and not so good. Sean suspected that and readers going to find out with him.

 

Nice read. A bit slow starts. The characters building is so well done and it almost make up for the non action part of the book. 

 

4.5 stars 

 

Reading this for Murder most Foul

Simple Genius - David Baldacci

As a mystery, not going really well as it is still unknown why two persons were killed. 

 

On the characters building side, it is so good. 

 

Viggie is the daughter of Monk was her father and he was dead. 

 

The scene is about Michelle having previously told Viggie she has problem cleaning out her car, and Viggie had done it for her. Michelle got upset that Viggie mess with her stuff. This set the scene that Michelle apologized to Viggie and Viggie understood her that they both have experienced this out of control moments. 

 

It is hard to sort out emotional stuff sometimes. Lot of people are pretending they are under control. And this is a good moments to strengthen the characters to make it more real.

Michelle has lost some of her marbles, and was persuaded to check herself in to a psychiatric ward for being a bit suicidal. 

 

Sean, being a good friend and partner, paid for the damage to keep Michelle out of a law suit. He took up a new case without Michelle. 

 

Michelle, being who she is, found trouble while trying to get better. 

 

Sean, have someone shot at him and found a dead body. 

 

Not as good as other crime novel the writer wrote. The story drag on a bit. 

 

Reading for Murder Most Foul square.

Addison Mizner: The Architect Whose Genius Defined Palm Beach by Stephen Perkins, James Caughman
Addison Mizner The Architect Whose Genius Defined Palm Beach - Stephen Perkins,James Caughman

Addison Mizner was an architect who designed and changed the look of Palm Beach and other towns of South Florida. His buildings are beautiful. They are designed in the Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival styles. 

 

The book is filled with pictures of some of his impressive buildings as well as pictures and the story of Addison Mizner. I actually chose this book for the pictures but once I started reading it I was enthralled by Addison's vision and thoughts. 

 

I am a huge fan of architecture and love learning about the differences between the different styles. I very much enjoyed learning about Addison's personal touches to the these styles as well. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
