    Not read any of these, I will keep an eye out for them.

  2. Absolutely love that show and cannot wait until the 3rd season is airing. For those that might not have Netflix, repeats of the episodes can be found on some public television networks.

    We’ll have to take a look at these, right after we finish watching Bosch, a Michael Connelly screen play series based on his books featuring Hieronymus Bosch, Excellent. Thanks so much for this recommendation.
