Please Pass the Poison by Frederick C. Davis, pulp mystery, first in Bill Brent series. Brent is a tough reporter who has been forced into the role of love columnist for The Recorder newspaper. Published between 1941 and 1946, these novels appeared in Dime Detective. In this, the first novel in the series, Brent gets mixed up in a poisoning case, against the wishes of both his editor and a rival reporter. Not bad.
Fear by Bob Woodward, non-fiction. What to say about this? A thick book full of often surprising, though on second thought not really that surprising, behind-the-scenes looks at the inner workings of the Trump White House. I shuddered a lot, exclaimed often, shook my head in disgust many times. Read it if you have the stomach.
So how about you?
