Good one. Here's one about K2 - The Summit: How Triumph Turned To Tragedy On K2's Deadliest Daysone of the most absorbing books i've read is John Krakauer's Into Thin Air.....about an Everest disaster.....you can't put it down.
At the same time, I was reading "The Chiefs" by Stuart Woods. His first novel, published in 1981. "The novel takes place in the fictional town of Delano, Georgia, over three generations, as three different police chiefs attempt to identify a serial killer operating in the area. As the author explains in a note, it was inspired by the story of his grandfather's death while serving as a police chief." It was made into a CBS miniseries in 1983.I am now reading the 2nd book in the "Walt Longmire" series by Craig Johnson. So far I am enjoying them. It is hard not to imagine the TV characters when reading the book, but they do seem to blend in together nicely. lol
The updated version (1999) is available at my public library . On the off chance I looked and the original is available for checkout from archive.org. I've added it to the ever-growing list.Here's a classic from 1978, it wasn't available on Kindle, but is still new in print.
