I just finished reading the new book by Tim Powers, "Three Days to Never". I loved it. I've been a fan of his ever since I read "The Anubis Gates". If you're a fan of Tim Powers, I highly recommend this book. It has all of the elements you would expect from one of his novels, such as religious mysticism, secret organizations doing all sorts of nasty things, and enough actual historical research to make you think that the story line is almost plausible. My only complaint about it is that it was too short. It was well worth the wait, and it's well worth the read.
