No! Wait!

Currently reading, I think, CLOSE CALL by Stella Rimington. 8th of 9 in series featuring Liz Carlyle, an agent in MI-5 Joint Counter-Terrorist Group, in London.

The Arab Spring has swept through the Middle East and Liz Carlyle and her compatriots in the Thames House's counter-espionage division are racing to investigate arms deals in Yemen. There's a UN embargo forbidding any member country from supplying arms to either side in the uprisings, but Andy Bokus, head of the CIA's London Station, has evidence that the weapons being smuggled into Yemen are not only being sold to both sides, but are coming from a connection in the UK-a highly embarrassing black mark on the government and, if true, full of disastrous consequences. British-American cooperation widens as Liz teams up with her old rival Bruno McKay, MI6's Head of Station in Paris, and Isobel Florian of the French domestic service, the DCRI, to trail and trap the elusive weapons dealer. The evidence points to a former French intelligence officer, Antoine Milraud, who leads them all on a mad chase across Europe until investigators witness him passing something to an elegantly dressed, very mysterious man. When Milraud is caught and informs on his fellow conspirators, Liz finds herself embroiled in a larger, potentially explosive situation that twists all the way back to what she feared most-that the arms are being sold through the UK, and the mysterious man is closer and more capable of brutal violence than she ever could have imagined.

Published in 2014, it has 352 pages.

Tonight we have The Curse of Oak Island "Swamp Things":

Evidence of a possible ancient shipwreck in the Oak Island swamp is found.
 After that is Hunting Hitler "Eyewitness Accounts":

A declassified document points to Hitler and a close associate, Leon Degrelle, possibly having moved from Denmark to San Sebastian, Spain, where eyewitnesses are found. In Argentina, investigators speak with a relative of Hermann Goering and a man who claims his father worked for Martin Bormann.
 There's also The Flash, being part two of the four-night cross over.

But I'll watch that tomorrow.

It got terribly windy here yesterday evening and into this morning. I hate wind.

Heh heh heh. Little joke. Ok, very little. Ok, off you go. Have a good day.

Much love,
PK the Bookeemonster
