Odessa Sea (Dirk Pitt, #24)Odessa Sea by Clive Cussler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Clive Cussler never disappoints. The book is fast paced the characters are realistic yet iconic. The villains are awful and the heroes are beautiful, witty, handsome and strong. The story is essentially ripped from the headlines with just enough reality to keep you reading. Want to relax with a book? This one is fun, fast and a pleasure to read.

Night School (Jack Reacher, #21)Night School by Lee Child
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a real mystery masterpiece. The story is complex, readable and entertaining. Just enough realism to make it a bit scary. Set early in Reacher's career, it hints at some of his later behaviors and quirks. I just love it. I wish Lee Child would write three books a year. This book can stand alone. One needs not know anything about the other books in the series to enjoy it.
Child's use of language and writing style really shines in this book. So many interesting and provocative story lines that converge in a few seconds of utter realism.
