The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Nine Elms - Robert Bryndza - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Nine Elms:

A masticating murder mystery.

My favorite Robert Bryndza quote from the book:

"You can't polish a turd."

Questions to ponder while reading Nine Elms:

How much freedom should convicted murderers get?

Why do killers attract a following?

My thoughts about Nine Elms:

A fun, thrilling read.

I admit to being disappointed, often, in Kate.

Another example of why you shouldn't sleep with co-workers.
