I wish. I'm just trying to make it easier for people to read about the book if they are interested.

I wish other people would post links so that I can more easily add the books to my Amazon wish list

I've read the whole Swagger series and have enjoyed them. I'm impressed that the author either is a shooter or at least has done the research to get the details on the weaponry correct, which is more rare than it should be.

I'm halfway through Into The Water, the second novel by Paula Hawkins who wrote the majorly popular The Girl On The Train. The premise is the "difficult women" who have drowned in the river running beside a small English town over the last couple hundred years; now two women recently have drowned, one a suicide and then the next perhaps a murder. The story is intruiging and the writing is excellent but stylistically it's a bit tiring: every chapter is one of the ten characters' inner thoughts and point of view that may clash with another's, and I have to keep thinking, who's this person, how do they relate? Overall very good though, and I haven't yet figured out "who dunnit" or even if anything actually was "dun".

If you like the character, I highly recommend reading all in the series. There is also a three book series about his father, Earl Swagger. One is set in 1953 Havana.

Prussian Blue, Philip Kerr. This is in the Bernie Gunther series of a German police detective in WW2. He hates the Nazis but has to work amongst them. This is a deeply researched series with recognizable names and a great read both as detective stories and for the history.
