Karen - Much more to like than not to like this time round. Good I didn't have my credit card nearby ;-)

Very nice set of reviews. I've already read some of these, but will certainly look out for the Graham book reviewed by Terry, which sounds good. I am so far behind with Bruen that I can't ever imagine catching up.....
