America is going through a purple patch in crime novelists these days .
My favourite authors are Michael Connelly , Dennis Lehane , Robert Crais and Harlan Coben . They are all award winning writers of the genre . Three of Lehane’s books have been made into excellent films Shutter Island , Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River .
I have just finished “ Steve Jobs “ by Walter Isaccson . This biography was completed just after Steve‘s death last year at the early age of 56 .
It is a massive book of over 500 pages but It was easy to read because of the fascinating life Jobs lived . He certainly changed the way we live , Apple Computers , Apple Stores, App stores , iphones, itunes and ipads and also of course Pixar Films .
I can’t say that I would have liked to work for him but he was a visionary genius bursting with ideas , a
perfectionist and got things done .
