Briefs: Book Notes May 03, 2009

Local book-signing

• A book about Buffy Rice Donahue’s murderer will be highlighted at two upcoming Western Slope book-signings.
Jeff Kaye, author of “Beware of the Cable Guy: From Cop to Serial Killer,” will sign copies of his book beginning at 6 p.m. Friday at Hastings Books, 2201-A S. Townsend, in Montrose and from
4–6 p.m. Saturday at Hastings Books, 2401 North Ave., in Grand Junction.
In “Beware of the Cable Guy,” Kaye wrote about David Middleton, a ex-policeman, who worked as a cable television installer in Reno, Nev., preying on the women he met. One of those women was Donahue of Montrose.
Middleton is now on death row in Nevada.
Kaye is a retired sergeant from Reno Police Department.

What’s on your nightstand?

• Tom Jones, the 68-year-old Welsh wonder and indomitable panty magnet, still tours the globe 11 months out of the year.
That doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for curling up with a good book. But before a recent gig at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, the Voice told us what good reads are waiting for him if and when he ever gets a much-needed rest.
What is on your nightstand?
Jones: I love history books, particularly British history. I just got “Victoria’s Wars: The Rise of Empire” (by Saul David), about the wars going on during Queen Victoria’s reign. Haven’t started it yet, but I plan to. I’m very interested in that time. Oh, and Tony Curtis just gave me a book.
Tony Curtis? What book did he give you?
Jones: Ha! He gave me his book (“American Prince: My Autobiography”)! Tony lives in Vegas. He comes to see me every time I’m there. He’ll come in that first week. I love just talking to him ‘cause Tony has all these great stories. If you ask the man any question, the man will tell you a great story.
