Finished Misery, by Stephen King. A popular fiction author wrecks his car in rural Colorado and is saved by a batshit crazy lady who claims to be his number-one fan, holds him captive and forces him to write a new novel resurrecting a character he killed off. One of King's best works. I remember watching the film version when I lived in Albuquerque almost 30 years ago.

Have started The Black Dahlia, by James Ellroy. A fictionalized film-noir account of the infamous 1947 murder in Los Angeles. Ellroy's breakthrough novel, it is also the first installment in his LA Quartet series, the best-known book of which is LA Confidential. Very good so far.
