Lock Your Bikes
Last night there was an attempted bike theft at the gym. Luckily the bike was reclaimed but the thief got away. If you're going to leave your bike by the front, please take a moment to lock your wheel to your frame so it can't be ridden away. Better yet, find a pole to lock it up on the street.
The CFSBK Book Club's Next Book
We have a smart crime thriller for our July book.....Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John Le Carre!
Set in the 1970's this novel is a look at the disenfranchisement of the spy game after the cold war and the lengths those within the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) will go to uncover and by some, hide, a Soviet mole. This is no James Bond or Jason Bourne style novel, there is no glitz and glamour, it is all about the compromises that are made as the once young guns of the SIS reach middle age and must face their own demons in a beige world where disenchantment has taken its toll. Le Carre eloquently captures the decay facing a once mighty empire who is now on the back foot and trying to assimilate into a changed world where there is a new game in town.
There's also a film adaptation staring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth and John Hurt for this one so feel free to check that out as well! Our next meeting will tentatively be on Sunday, July 15 at Pacific Standard. Mark your calendars!
