Charity Shop Find: Sam Bourne Books02/24/2018 Steve Add Comment
Walking home from a stroll around our local farmers market, where we bought an amazing tasting chicken and mushroom pie, and we happened upon a new charity shop in town, which I think was for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. Anyway, my failing memory aside, always on the lookout for a good book to read, we popped in. I’ve just this week finished reading Sam Bourne’s (pseudonym of journalist Jonathan Freedland) To Kill The President, which was my first of his. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and as much as you’d think no this couldn’t happen, with the incumbent President in America right now, who knows? I won’t spoil it for you, other than to say it was definitely a page-turner with lots of twists and turns along the way. Keen to read more of Sam Bourne’s books I was on the hunt for other works of his, and would you believe it, I found one!
Well actually, I found one, and then so surprised and elated, I didn’t notice a second one right next to it. Thankfully my wife was more observant than I, and so for the grand price of 67p, I walked away with two books from an author I had just discovered and wanted to read more from – amazing. You know what is the cherry on the icing on the cake? The Righteous Men is his first book, which means after I’m finished reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas I can get stuck into the very first of Sam Bourne’s novels, without needing to look any further than my own bookshelf.
