Wednesday Words: The Star of Istanbul

Good morning, and welcome back to Wednesday Words!

This is the day where I share with you all what I am currently reading (or writing). I've been picking up speed on my reading challenge, and hopefully I catch up.

Today, we're looking at one of my favorite authors, Robert Olen Butler, and his second thriller from his Christopher Marlowe Cobb series: The Star of Istanbul.

I read The Hot Country one or two years back now, and the way Prof. Butler can work his words always keeps me interested. Still wish I'd stayed one more semester at FSU to take his class. But oh well. ha

Using, I will turn to a page and share a line or so with you all. There are 369 pages in this book, and Random chose page 296. I'm not quite there yet, so hopefully not much is given away for me.

Maybe that saved my life. She probably had her pistol in her little bag. Maybe she would have liked to shoot me dead there in the Kubbeli Salon for endangering her plan.

I could see how that plan would seem mortally important, once you'd committed to it.

Love it. I made the common mistake I make of looking further down the page, so I gave away something for myself. Can't wait to get to it, though!

Are you reading anything good?
