I'm way overdue for a Spy novel--really feeling the urge--and yet, I'm also overdue for a Crime novel that is NOT by a British or USA author. so, since I know I will get to some spies sooner or later, cuz, hey, that's how I roll, I'll put it off a little longer. my Spy options are all British or USA offerings, so there's that, too. no, I think an Italian Noir Crime novel is in order (after comics). I'm about to meet...the Alligator!
