Some nice reviews, Karen, as usual. Thursday Night Widows sounds great fun and I shall definitely put that on my list as I think I'd enjoy it. Although I don't read Jack Higgins-style thrillers any more, the one by Terence Strong sounds very tempting, also. Interesting to see Laura's slightly different take on Unknown.

I enjoyed your review of Thursday Night Widows--I just finished it myself over the weekend and really enjoyed it. Although I don't watch Desperate Housewives, it came to mind as I was reading, too!
