    I just finished Executioner: Blood Toll. Very good techno-thriller.

    I've generally enjoyed the Executioner, Mack Bolan, and Stony Man series, but you have to be careful, as they are ghost-written by a slough of different authors. Phil Elmore has been consistently good, and Chuck Rogers is hit or miss. Check the front matter of the books for their author credit, it's not on the cover.

    Just started Hunt at the Well of Eternity. I finished Hunt Through the Cradle of Fear a while back, and really liked it. This is good, pulp adventure in the tradition of Indiana Jones. Ghost-written again (author credit is "Gabriel Hunt", but the company seems to keep a tighter reign on their writers.

    Let's see, what's aging on my shelf.....
    The Professor and the Madman
    Surprised by Joy
    the new Phil Elmore Executioner book releases this October
    ooh, getting a new Rick Riordan "Percy Jackson" book this October
    Kingdom Keepers 1, 2, 3
    Peter and the Starcatchers series
    Artemis Fowl series

    I finished The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan a little bit back. Awesome stuff, great Egyptian flavored magical adventure. Can't wait for more in the series.
