What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

So political mysteries really aren't my thing. I like pure detective, police work. But this was Lawrence Block. And I love Lawrence Block! And well, I LOVED The Triumph of Evil. It is smart and funny and even though it is set in the 70s, amidst the protests of the Vietnam War and the struggle for civil rights, it is still very enjoyable today and really holds up. Miles is an assassin, but likable...like Keller. I do love Keller. Great book.
