Currently reading 8/28/07Finished 9/4/07- Felt like i was watching Cagney and Lacey- This really isn't my kind of book.

Four people have died who are working on the same project. Quite scary as some of the ideas which may have seemed so far fetched when they were written are happening now!

This is a really fun read. It is not the most believable in terms of story, but the pacing is so fast that I didn't really care. If your in the mood for a quick and exciting read, pick this one up.

Very cool. This book about the devastating effects of weather control experiments, murder, & a race to find out why leave Kelly & Diane running for their lives in an attempt to find out why their husbands were murdered. It's a fast & fascinating read!

I like Sidney Sheldon so this was another good read for me. After 4 people that were connected to a "think" tank, mysteriously die/killed. The spouses are forced to join together - there is mystery until the end of story!
