The Men Who Stare At Goats, Jon Ronson.  This one has been around for well over a decade now I think, a hardly believable account of the author's research - mainly interviews - into the military's efforts to engage in psychic warfare, remote viewing, and the title's killing of goats with the mind...  It is so out there that you can hardly believe it's true, and I haven't bothered to look into how true and accurate the book may be, or how relaible the interviewees, but there are some interesting storylines albeit by this point perhaps well-trodden paths (MK-Ultra in particular).  Links to Heaven's Gate and Branch Davidians quite amazing.  Thought I'd throw an entry into this thread, and there it is.  Saw the movie of this book, but that was in the midst of my drinking days and the memories are scant indeed - I believe George Clooney was involved, but perhaps that was just... a creation of my mind.

The Guardians

By:  John Grisham

In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young black man who was once a client of Russo’s. 

Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence.  But no one was listening.  He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister.

Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time.  Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated.

They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

Good, solid story. Fast moving and very entertaining.

Gentlemen,

I would not have placed a major sum on a bet that Cavanami can read at all but I was wrong. After I am through with my favorite writers like Wilbur Smith et al I did not really have a clue where to look. Reading great books ( paper only ) is of utmost importance for me so I was heading for a crisis til I found Cavanami promoting a guy named John Grisham. What a fantastic writer. Currently buzy with A Time for Mercy, can´t wait to collapse on my sofa tonight and read what happens next. Always the English version, translation destroys the works.

When you finish try James Lee Burke.  He has a couple series and some independent books out.  Fantastic, descriptive writer.   Also available in paper.
