READER BOOK PLUG: So I finished Stephen Hunter’s Basil’s War: A WWII Spy Thriller, and found it quite entertaining. As he said in an email, it’s lighter than his Bob Lee Swagger novels, but that was fun. And you have to admire a man who, however cynical he appears, gives up a night with Vivien Leigh for patriotic reasons.

UPDATE (FROM THE COMMENTS:) “Stephen Hunter is one of a handful of authors whose books I consider to be ‘must reads’ sight unseen. Having said that, this book is completely different from anything Hunter has written before. It’s as George MacDonald Frasier wrote a James Bond novel. Great fun and one of the most entertaining books I have read in years.”
