Over Christmas I have read two books.
The first was Catching Monsters by David Bright. This book isn't for the faint hearted. David Bright writes well, but this is not a book that gives you a nice happy glow inside. What is does do is reveal some of the things that he was involved in throughout his career. It was a compelling read and certainly showed me the pressures that the police csn be under.
The second book was A Planet for the President by Andrew Beaton. It is a funny satirical fiction book obviously having a go at the actions of the British and the USA in recent years. At several times it had me laughing outloud, yet also had several good twists. Well worth a read, particularly if you enjoy political things, e.g. 24 or the West Wing.
