Day #22,275

Walk km 12,442-12,444: to the library

Book #440: Fire Lake (1987, Jonathan Valin)

Ah, it's good to be back to paper again. And as an added bonus: one of the very best of the PI crime novelists, Jonathan Valin.
As usual, PI Harry Stoner is up to his neck in a world so corrupt and dirty (they don't call it SinSinNaughty for nothing) that no matter where you live, it'll seem like Disneyland by comparison. Violence, drugs, murder, sex, filth and vomit abound.

Movie #2161: Illicit (1931, Archie Mayo)
Barbara Stanwyck is a modern gal with new fangled ideas about love and marriage.
By the end of the movie she's learned her lesson: the idiotic old ways are better!
