In case you didn't know, Bill Clinton is a voracious reader, a huge fan of crime fiction, and generous with personal praise to writers. I know that he has contacted Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben, and others to thank them for their work. He even called me once after Judgment Calls was published to say how much he enjoyed my first book (yes, I did freak out, but only on the inside - I hope).



He's also a fan of JLB (aka my dad) and says here that Tin Roof Blowdown is "definitely his best book yet."

Made me proud, so I wanted to share it. Now if only we could find some way to put these quotes on our book jackets!

Get him to carry the books at his wife's political events. And maybe get a custom designed tie for your next book and send him one.
