Five young girls are reported missing, but six severed arms turn up in a forest clearing. Who did it and why? This crime thriller had me up all night turning pages wanting to solve the case with the author! There are numerous plot twists and turns that I didn't see coming. This book will be on every mystery reader's list this year!

Best book I read this year. Follow the author as he finds lost and rare art, often "painted over" and forgotten for hundreds of years. Lost paintings by Rembrandt, Norman Rockwell and Winslow Homer are all featured in this whodunit of a story.

So you want to get back to a simpler life? Communicate with nature? Shed the shackles of today's life sitting at a computer for 8 hours each and every day? Be able to fix things? Raise chickens? Gain satisfaction from working with your hands like your father and grandfather? Then this is the book for you. Not a how to do book, but how to think about fixing things, living in the moment of today instead of schlepping off to the mall to replace a broken item.
