A Higher Loyalty
A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership - James Comey

I didn't know what to expect with Comey's memoir, and I ended up being impressed by his sense of principled leadership and ethical conduct. I don't necessarily see eye-to-eye with him on every issue, but I can appreciate his thought processes as he describes his reasoning behind various difficult decisions.

 

Going back to working in Rudy Giuliani's U.S. Attorney's office in New York City in the 1980s, to being in the Department of Justice under the Bush II administration, to Barack Obama's appointing him as FBI Director, through Donald Trump firing him (via the TV news), Comey takes the reader on a fascinating ride, with a narrative peppered with humor that sometimes made me laugh out loud (while in public, listening to my little mp3 player). Regardless of what your current opinion of James Comey might be, I think the book is well worth reading/listening to.

Death of a Snob by M. C. Beaton (audiobook)
Death of a Snob - M.C. Beaton,Shaun Grindell

Series: Hamish Macbeth #6

 

This was a straightforward little mystery wherein Hamish Macbeth acts like a pansy because he thinks he's dying of influenza when he catches a cold and later indulges in some slut shaming because calmly refusing a woman who makes a pass at him isn't acceptable; he has to try to make her feel ashamed for her behaviour. Give me a break. Oh, and Priscilla gets some much needed rest.

 

At least the book called out the ridiculousness of a romance plot (in a book) where the heroine falls in love with her rapist.

This was a re-read via the audiobook, narrated by Campbell Scott. He is FANTASTIC!

 

I loved every minute of this audio and highly recommend it, even if you've already read the book or seen the movie.
