I finished Alan Glynn's Bloodland last night. I can't really recommend it. I thought it was okay, but it never really came together for me. I felt like I was reading it through a blurry lens. All of the ingredients for a really good thriller were there, but it just never focused enough. At least it was a fast read.
Now I'm reading Island of Vice: Theodore Roosevelt's Doomed Quest to Clean Up Sin-Loving New York by Richard Zacks. It's set in NYC in the late 19th century when Roosevelt was the police commissioner and went up against Tammany Hall to get rid of the gambling, prostitution and all-night saloons. This is one of my favorite periods of history and the writing has already got me hooked.
