My wife is collecting some Henning Mankell books for our holidays, so that might be worth a try. Mind you, I haven't read one yet, so I cannot tell you from personal experience, but my wife sure loves the better detective stories.

Yeah, I always enjoy a good Tom Clancy novel when I'm on my hols for the same reason. ;)

god i've got tons - the blue serpent's a good one, valhalla rising's not bad, raise the titanic's - do a search on him at amazon and lots will pop up and they are all good.

you can normally find lots of clive cussler / tom clancy books at second hand shops and car boots.

sean - maybe we should go on holidays together and swap books!  ;)

If we went on holiday together, I'd find plenty of things to do with you other than swapping books.

I hope you only mean literary things here, otherwise I have to lock the two of you in the basement. ;D

Great idea, I would recommend the following -

John Kennedy Toole - A Confederacy of Dunces - great & very funny read. Different.

Ben Mezrich - Bringing Down the House - unputdownable very interesting and one of my faves I've read this year.

Tim O'Brien - Tomcat in Love - read this a couple of years ago and it was a really good read. I liked the main character a lot.

Kuke Reinhart - The Dice Man - another really good book, I read this one in early 2004 and I would recommend it to anyone.
