Before I tell my readers about “Pam’s Picks” this week I have to tell you about a “whoops” in last week’s column. The description of the Catherine Coulter book, “Split Second was really the description for “The Kingdom” by Clive Cussler. So here is “Split Second”, this is a pulse pounding thriller. A serial killer is on the loose. It’s up to FBI agents Savich and Sherlock to bring him down. Turns out the killer has a blood tie to now long dead monster Ted Bundy. I am sorry about that error.
