Wild Fire by Nelson DeMille.
 
Traded back in today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse *-* Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
From author Nelson DeMille comes a suspenseful novel featuring Detective John Corey and an all too plausible conspiracy to detonate a nuclear bomb in two major American cities.
Welcome to the Custer Hill Club, an informal men's club set in a luxurious Adirondack hunting lodge whose members include some of America's most powerful business leaders, military men, and government officials.
Ostensibly, the club is a place to gather with old friends, hunt, eat, drink, and talk off the record about war, life, death, sex and politics, normal gentleman's fare.

Wrong on both counts but not a problem, most people, even the (think they are the) cleverest think we run it as a hobby even though we have been running for 14 years nearly and just increased the book space tre demand. As for paper books, the figures were on the up last time I looked, Authors pissed off because so easily pirated for e-books. The 50 straight, more like 500 are to show our readers an example of what comes in daily although just a small sample but is appreciated.   And the business is completely legal with no payouts to anyone to function illegally?
