Normally now would be the time that we would be narrowing down the selection for the Lazy Lightning Book Club. I’m not sure about everyone else but I have no idea how it can already be the end of March.
I was thinking about book choices and what we may want to read in 2012Q2 at the end of February. Right, four weeks ago. I realized last night that we really won’t have enough time to vote for a new book and make our selection by, oh I don’t know, THIS Sunday.
So, I propose that for the LLBC selection for Q2 we go ahead and read the book that came in second place in the last vote. We’ll get back on track with our standard selection and voting process with the next book. Bur for now the Lazy Lightning Book Club selection for Q2 will be The Kill Artist.
Following is a brief description of the book. It is an older book and should be available used or new and of course at the library. Thanks and as always Happy Reading!
Gabriel Allon was a key operative in secret Israeli-intelligence missions. When his wife and daughter fell victim to the danger that accompanied him everywhere, Gabriel quit and devoted himself to the work of art restoration– previously a cover for his secret missions. But now Ari Shamron, the head of Israeli intelligence, needs Gabriel’s particular kind of experience to thwart a Palestinian plot to destroy the peace negotiations in the Middle East. The architect of this plot, a Palestinian zealot named Tariq, is a lethal part of Gabriel’s past, and so as the two begin an intercontinental game of hide-and-seek, with life and death as the prizes, the motives are as personal as they are political.
