    And three hits:

    Jack O'Connell's _Wireless_, as hardboiled a novel as I've read in a long time, exceptionally well written and unforgettable.

    A reread of Richard Condon's _The Manchurian Candidate_, great novel, far richer and superior to either movie (although the first movie is excellent taken on its own).

    And finally a first read of a Thomas Cook novel that had escaped my notice: _Into the Web_. Very dark, superbly written... like everything else I've read by this author.

    All three are highly recommended to those who don't already know them.
