Most intriguing books in our guest house, as judged by their titles: “Beware The Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt” (Harvey Mackay); “Anything For Billy” (Larry McMurtry); “The Fist Of God” (Frederick Forsyth); “An Insular Possession” (Timothy Mo); “The Unmaking Of A Mayor” (William F. Buckley, Jr.); “The Parsifal Mosaic” (Robert Ludlum).
