Last Train to Paradise : Henry Flagler and the Spectacular Rise and Fall of the Railroad that Crossed an Ocean / Les Standiford
Not bad at all. A good follow-up to reading A Splendid Savage: The Restless Life of Frederick Russell Burnham
by Steve Kemper


These gilded age characters are fascinating.

re: What are you reading?
I just finished the first 4 books of the Will Robie series the past two months.

The Innocent- great
The Hit- good/great
The Target- ok
The Guilty- meh. It's like it was ghostwritten and the person got Will Robie and Amos Decker characters mixed up.

Didn't like the last two, now deciding on if I should read End Game or move on to something else.

Thoughts on John Puller or others I should try? Never read any Brad Thor, Clancy, etc

Also, Jack Carr is probably my new favorite writer in this genre.

I finished Savage Son a few weeks ago. Ending wasn't my favorite but overall the James Reece series has been fantastic, especially if you like mission-specific and tactical type details woven into the story.

Puller series was pretty good. Also, sticking with Baldacci, try the Camel Club series.

Scott Harvath series by Brad Thor is pretty good.

I'm slowly knocking out the Cotton Malone series by Steve Berry.

Have you ever read any of the Preston & Child books? The Pendergast series is pretty good.

I have Camel Club and have tried it on two separate occasions. I just haven't been able to get interested. Granted, I use audible and the narration isn't my favorite.

Finn McCool’s by Stephen Rea

It is about members of the pub’s soccer squad and their trials and tribulations during Katrina.

It is a bit scattered, but a solid read nonetheless.

Too bad he is an a-hole and a Chelsea fan.
