I've read some of them in paper, but they aren't (legally) available as ebooks, so I'm putting off re-reading them in the hope that they'll be released as ebooks.
I was just doing some of my periodic random searches on Amazon, and I notice that many of the Campion books are now available on the UK Kindle store from Vintage. Not all of them, but hopefully the rest are in the process of being released.

Now, I have to figure out what to start next.
I had to flip through and start a few and found that I was continuing to read the one I was on, so decided to just keep reading. The Delphi Agenda by Rob Swigart.
Spoiler:
Publication Date: December 1, 2012
You thought the Inquisition was scary the first time around. Now they have modern technology!

Papyrologist Lisa Emmer’s world flips when the Surete meets her at her Metro station with news of the savage murder of the esteemed Paris historian Dr. Raimond Foix, her friend and mentor in the study of ancient documents. Horrified, Lisa finds clues at the crime scene left behind for her by her mentor—clues to a secret kept hidden for centuries. These clues make her a prime suspect in the murder investigation, and also put her directly in the cross-hairs of a deadly commando group that proves to be none other than a contemporary offshoot of the Inquisition.

They want an ancient document that reveals a secret so explosive it could change the world—a document they’ve been tracking for centuries. Led by a sadistic priest and a vicious but very accomplished nun with excellent military cred, their mission is to destroy the document—no matter what the cost in blood.

Desperate to clear her name and to stay alive, with the help of a handsome yet mysterious banker, Lisa must solve the clues and uncover the millennia-old secret before her adversaries can find and destroy it. Since she was a child Lisa had suffered from uncontrollable fugue states. Now she discovers just in time that what she always thought was a liability may in fact be an almost paranormal ability to see things in ways others cannot. The trail leads everywhere from ancient cemeteries and tombs throughout France to Istanbul and Greece, as Lisa and Steve desperately stay one step ahead of their enemies, solving the clues to a dangerous treasure hunt their lives now depend upon.

I almost didn't start it, due to the beginning, but I kept reading and found that I was still reading instead of looking for another book. I am about 30% in to the book and find it really interesting. I do want to find out what happens and I like all the extra bits of information. This is not a literary masterpiece, but it is a fun read, so far.

I also meant to add that I just now finished a wonderful read by Jeff Strand - "Stalking You Now."

This is a novella, but it's one of the fastest reads you'll ever encounter - and it's a FUN read. I highly recommend this as an excellent psychological-horror/suspense story.

Last night I finished Great North Road and it was very good. Highly recommended. It's a big one, but very well worth the read.

Now onto a book I've put off while reading Graet North Road. I am now reading Star Trek: The Original Series: The Weight of the World by Greg Cox.


Quote:
The Ephrata Institute is an intellectual think tank at the outer fringes of the final frontier. Dedicated to the arts and sciences, the Institute seems an unlikely target for an invasion, but it proves easy pickings when the Crusade comes from beyond, determined to impose its harsh, unbending Truth on all the worlds of the Federation. Armed with weaponized gravity, the alien Crusaders will stop at nothing to rescue the universe from its myriad beliefs . . . even if it means warping the mind and soul of every sentient being they encounter.

Responding to an urgent distress signal, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise soon find themselves in conflict with the Crusade, and facing individual challenges. When Kirk and Spock are transported to the Crusade’s distant homeland to confront the source of the invasion, Sulu finds himself trapped behind enemy lines, while Lieutenant Uhura is faced with possibly the most difficult decisions of her career.

As the Crusade sets its sights beyond Ephrata IV, it is up to the Enterprise and its besieged crew to keep freedom of thought from being crushed beneath the weight of worlds!

I've read the first one of this series and I found it to be highly overrated.

This is today's Kindle Daily Deal and I'm debating whether or not to buy it.

I'm about 75% of the way through Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley. I'd describe it as a romance that is partially set during the Jacobite Risings and modern times. The book does a nice job evoking its Cornwall setting. My description doesn't do the book justice.

I'm about three quarters done and I agree with you, Jon. It is very good. And although it is long, you don't notice, because it keeps you engrossed all the way.

I'm having a hard time getting into this one. I'm on the fifth chapter and I don't know if I should just force myself into finishing it since it's a very short book.

I've just started The Iliad by Homer. Travelling through Greece and seeing so many ancient temples made me think that I ought to read that and The Odyssey. It might take a couple of years though, very hard going!

Just finished Time After Time by Kate Atkinson (recommended by @poohbear_nc, if my memory serves), a solid 5 star read. A rather different take on time travel, beautifully crafted.

Now moved onto something grittier and darker, Sandman Slim, a recommendation by @CWatkinsNash I believe.

Currently reading a classic: Starman Jones, by Robert Heinlein. Some of the science shows it's age, obviously, but it's still an excellent story. And an enjoyable read.

Meanwhile, I've abandoned Invasion: Book One of the Secret World Chronicles. What a complete and total waste of electrons. ALL too obviously a book written and conceived by a committee, and not a very well disciplined one. That's one series I won't be bothering with again.
