Cool Booklist 2010

- Cool Hand Luke ~ Donn Pearce - a great read even though I've seen the film more than a dozen times.
- The Dawn Patrol ~ Don Winslow
- A Loyal Character Dancer ~ Qiu Xiaolong - bit of a let down after enjoying the first book in the series 'Death of a Red Heroine'.
- Destination: Morgue! ~ James Ellroy - his staccato writing style is beginning to annoy me.
- Naoko ~ Keigo Higashino
- The Adventure of English ~ Melvyn Bragg
- The Meaning of Everything ~ Simon Winchester - very interesting
- The Killer Inside Me ~ Jim Thompson - a bit frustrating
- Mildred Pierce ~ James M. Cain
- American Gothic: Family ~ W.T. Quick - old TV tie-in that sat on my bookshelf unread for over 10 years!
- The Way Home ~ George Pelecanos
- Salt River ~ James Sallis - my favourite book of 2010, a shame he limited the series to only a trilogy.
- Hit and Run ~ Lawrence Block
- Misery ~ Stephen King - finally read it, almost 20 years after I lost my last copy when I was less than 100 pages in!
- Dexter by Design ~ Jeff Lindsay
- Demolition Angel ~ Robert Crais
- Cadillac Beach ~ Tim Dorsey - possibly the funniest of the series so far.
- Fantasyland ~ Sam Walker - an interesting look at fantasy baseball leagues.
- -- - - 1st to Die ~ James Patterson - a stinker
- The Last Good Kiss ~ James Crumley
- The Wrong Case ~ James Crumley
- Dancing Bear ~ James Crumley
- The Night Gardener ~ George Pelecanos
- When Red Is Black ~ Qiu Xiaolong - after the slight disappointment of 'A Loyal Character Dancer', I enjoyed this one as much as the first book in the series.
- Drama City ~ George Pelecanos
- Fear Itself ~ Walter Mosley
- Coward's Kiss ~ Lawrence Block
- Grifter's Game ~ Lawrence Block
- You Could Call it Murder ~ Lawrence Block
- The Girl with the Long Green Heart ~ Lawrence Block
