Smoked Turkey

On the reading front, I’ve been trying to stick to pulp by known authors, things I know I’ll be able to get through quickly.  I’ve read Field Gray, which wasn’t the best Bernie Gunther novel, but it catches me up to Prague Fatale, the first novel I read in the series.  I also read The […]
