The Girl in the Spider’s Web, by David Lagercrantz. Successful Larsson legacy. Quite an accomplishment. Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomqvist stayed true to character in this continuation of the Millennium Trilogy. Fast-paced techno action thriller with familiar familial characters and raging unresolved revenge. Kindred boy savant serves to rekindle Tattoo Girl’s humanity.

Hillary’s Act II is faltering. Or what act is it? Who is she? Meanwhile, Ben Carson protests that he is not a ‘ser-vant’. True. He is definitely not. A savant. Does The Donald have a second act? We will see soon.

And. Jake has named his new NY family pet. Uncle Gary. The dog.
