Blackburn (Special Forces: Operation Alpha)
Blackburn (Special Forces: Operation Alp... Blackburn (Special Forces: Operation Alpha) - Brynne Asher Cute overall. I loved the danger in the jungle part, but then the 2nd 1/2 of the book was about Lillian's family drama. It felt disjointed a bit. There were a lot of questions about the jungle part that didn't get answered because the focus became Lillian's family.

Operation Alcestis - Maggie Rennert

there are things I like about this book, there are things I don't like so much--I have no idea at this point what sort of rating I'm going to give it. it's an interesting way of doing things, I'll give it that.

Operation Alcestis - Maggie Rennert

in addition to this book providing a bizarre murder(?) plus repercussions, it seems I'm also being brought up to speed on the nature of "hippie" counter-culture movements emanating from students of universities in and around the Boston area in the mid-1970s, and responses to be expected from the various law-enforcement authorities...especially if a corpse appears. anyway--a strange, slightly off-putting, but nevertheless compelling old Mystery novel.

Operation Alcestis - Maggie Rennert

the style has taken a bit of getting used to--I'm having flashbacks to the style of an author I haven't read in ages: Sarah Caudwell (which is weird, because of course Caudwell's books came after Maggie Rennert's, but I'm sort of doing things in reverse)--but now that I've had a few chapters of it, and the story has started to peep out from the wry quirky wordiness, I'm enjoying this. intriguing set-up to this Mystery, including the early arrest of what seems to be the wrong suspect. I also learned who poor Alcestis was...and what her story means to this story.
