This makes me sad because I was asked to review his last book, DEATH OF THE BLACK HAIRED GIRL, for a well-known magazine. I enjoyed the story because it was full of strong characters and had an amazing plot. I assume his other books are just as well-written but I have never read them... yet.Post a Comment
