Had a bit of an amazon stint. After recs from here and my brother, i have ordered 'enigma' by Robert Harris, 'Maus' which is a graphic novel about the holocaust and an interesting one-'Ninja' by Eric Van Lustbader. I had never heard of this author but he has rave reviews on amazon. So if anyone's looking for something new, this may be a good choice.
