Cu Dubh, have you ever seen the movie "Donnie Brasco" with Al Pacino and Johnny Depp? Johnny Depp plays an FBI agent who goes undercover and gets deeper in the Mafia than anyone before him. It also is based on a true story. Donnie Brasco was the alias that FBI agent Joe Pistone used. He is now living under another alias in the witness protection program.

No Mike i haven't, but this is the strange thing - At the end of the book Corbett (the author) actually gets to meet this big shot American FBI agent at a lecture in London. Who do you think the agent is? That's right Donnie Brasco! He bacame a good friend to Corbett and according to the book Brasco came to Scotland on holiday at Corbett's invitation shortly afterwards. Must see that film now.
CR: if you like true crime with a tartan twist then this is your book. smile.gif

Cu Dubh, have you read any of Ian Rankin's books? I had a chance to meet him last year but he showed up late and I had to go. Did peruse through his books though and SHOULD have bought some. *slaps myself on the head*

I loved the Donnie Brasco film so I probably will love your "tartan twist" crime book too! wink.gif

No CR sorry i haven't. I'm not really into crime books, but my Sister is a Police Officer laugh.gif and she gave it to me to read. I have to admit when i first saw the book i thought i would hate it. I read a chapter and was hooked. biggrin.gif Anyway if i ever do get round to reading one of Rankin's books i'll know who to ask for a discount book. wink.gif smile.gif

Cu Dubh! I went to order that book by Corbett you recommended. Holy cow! That book is expensive! It would cost me $35.00 to buy it. I am going out of town tomorrow and will look for it in the used book store. Good thing your sister gave it to you! laugh.gif

It's just a paperback too. Don't see why it should be so expensive CR. The price for it here is 7.99. I don't think my sister payed that for it though as she got it 'Doon the Barras' Glasgow's very own flea-market. biggrin.gif

The book on my nightstand right now is Misery by Stephen King. I love both the book and the movie with James Caan and Kathy Bates. The movie is one of the few based on a Stephen King story that has remained true to the story. Kathy Bates was excellent as Annie.

The other screen adaptations that have remained true to Stephen King stories are 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, Stand By Me (based on the short story "The Body" in the Different Seasons collection), and the TV miniseries The Stand, The Tommyknockers, and It.

Hmmm, well Cu I looked at Amazon and I think it was only available in hardback, that is why. I need to look again. Maybe I saw it wrong. However, I did go to the big city this week to a couple of book stores and looked for it, but didn't find it. Found a boat load of other books though. laugh.gif I'll find it eventually. So that is what they call it in Glasgow, eh? "Doon the Barras?" I'll have to remember that. wink.gif

I am still reading Fire Along the Sky by Sara Donati. So far I am really liking this book #4 to the series. smile.gif

Mike! I LOVE the movie, Misery! That is such a great movie and I love Kathy Bates anyway. I have never read the book though.

I finished Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and you were all right. I really enjoyed it. I have started Dragonfly in Amber and it looks to be as good. Glad I finally got around to reading them!! smile.gif

Right now, a well-worn copy of "The Stand" by Stephen King.
