I think I've recommended before but The Dirty War by Martin Dillon is absolutely compelling reading and as good a place to start as any for an essential read about The Troubles in NI.

American Kingpin is very good! It's about The Silk Road site which was selling drugs and weapons on the dark web a few years ago. Also got The Looming Tower on the go.

I'm in audiobook mode right now because reading is too much like hard work .

Just finished it now. Best book I've read.... or err listened to in some time.

I read a lot of Stephen Kings novels. Last year I read the entire Dark Tower series. It is superb. Somehow they put Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey into a film about it and totally fucked it up. 
Amazon have picked it up to do a TV series which should be great

You may have noticed that Rose Tremain was made a Dame in the New Year Honours list; she is Britain's greatest living author, IMHO. Try any of her books but Merivel is terrific as is Music and Silence. Both those two are comedic historical fiction, easy reads too.

Just finished reading  a James Patterson book called The Store which spookily operates like a combination of Amazon and Google.

Same one ?

The Bernie Gunther series of books by Philip Kerr should keep you occupied for quite a while if you get into them. 

Just dug a few out of the garage. Looking forward to reading them all again. Could have quite a bit of time on my hands soon.

On the Kindle I’ve disappeared down a Vietnam War and Northern Ireland Troubles wormhole both of which fascinate me

Actual books - just about to finish “A Smell Of Burning” - wow, just fucking wow- living with epilepsy - heart rending stuff

Killing Rage, Stone Cold, Bandit Country and Fifty Dead Men Walking are the ones that I found most interesting. And disturbing

Andrea Pirlos autobiography - I think therefore I play. Great book. Had the pleasure of doing a coaching session in New York with work and I was in utter awe at how effortless of a footballer he was. Absolutely born to play football. 
He Was close to joining Man City he got to Manchester and it was hammering it down his wife stayed in the hotel and she said not a chance, few days later he was in New York

If I can cut back on the drinking I'm going to start The Erstwhile by Brian Catling. It's the second in a trilogy and the first was a decent read, hard to describe but it's weird fantasy I suppose.
