very anxious to read another Simenon novel, because My Friend Maigret was so satisfying, mere weeks ago. this one, however, is not a Maigret entry, which is perfectly fine with me, because my fave Simenon so far was another stand-alone: The Stain On The Snow (aka Dirty Snow).
after this, back to Summer Of Spies, with either The Eiger Sanction, or Night Soldiers, both lovely gifts from Themis!
We liked this children's book with the gorgeous painted illustrations that educates little ones about different types of trains and all things related to them, all told in rhyme. Includes a glossary with pictures about the words which might be new to children. I won this copy in a giveaway-- thank you!
If you like trans you will love this book. My 3 year old Grandson who loves trains set with me while looking through this book, and he loved it. The pictures are in black and white. They range from 1938 to the 1960's. There are pictures of trains, cargo, railroad workers, and rail road stations. The photography in this book is just awesome. It is a relatively short book only 128 pages, but most of the pages are pictures. There are about 10 pages at the back of th ebook that tells you about the pictures as well.
I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
This was a good mystery with a cowboy type hero although he had no horse. He drove a fast car. I really enjoyed all of the historical details that were woven in with the story. This story has a western feel and is captivating even without cursing and graphic scenes. Once I got half way through the book there was no putting it down until the end. The "chase" scene made you feel like you were on board.
