Fine, I'll bite: why should you kill him? I mean, by all means, kill the Buddha, but...

Reading "The Demolished Man" by Alfred Bester. (No, not that one.) I think I've been trying to make myself like the wrong SF Grand Masters all along....

If you want a nice quick detective story, definitely try either of these books!
Just finished The Cuckoo's Calling, haven't seen Silkworm in paperback yet. I really do need to get myself an e-reader... A word of warning, if cant language bothers you, Galbraith may not be your cup of tea. At least in Cuckoo, you get a lot of f-words thrown around.

A fair point about the language warning. It doesn't worry me so I didn't even think of adding a warning.

I actually read silkworm in hardback. First one I've read in ages. As I rule I don't buy them, but this one was a gift.
