A Maiden's Grave ...

The past week or so I've been into reading again as I mentioned in my previous post. I'm normally into espionage and military stuff like Tom Clancy, Dale Brown, Larry Bond, Robert Ludlum or adventure stuff from the likes of Clive Cussler, Dan Brown and science fiction (well, only Star Trek to be specific) stuff but recently out of desperation I've taken to reading a whole new genre I have haven't tired before.

I'm very particular about the authors or books I read. I don't usually try out books I've never heard of but because I've read every book in my little mini library at least 10 times I decided to go downstairs where I have another cabinet of old books, not mine really, more like my moms and rummage through them. I found two books that looked decent and besides there was nothing else better to read so I grabbed them.

I thought I was probably going to give up halfway cos that's what I normally do with books I don't like or think I won't like. But I was pleasantly surprised that both the books were so darn interesting that I couldn't put them down at all. I was practically glued to every page so much so that I was sad when I finished reading it. Now what in heavens name was I going to read? Looks like it's time to rummage the cabinet again ... hehehe ...

Anyways, below is a little brief summary for one of the books I read. It's titled 'A Maiden's Grave' by Jeffery Deaver. A really captivating author who knows how to keep your interested piqued all the time. I just couldn't wait to see what happened next in every page.


Synopsis : A trio of desperate convicts has hijacked a bus carrying a group of deaf and mute schoolgirls who are now being held hostage in a disused slaughterhouse. FBI agent Arthur Potter has to negotiate with the men. The killers will murder one innocent child an hour until their demands are met.
