    Dear Charles, Many thanks for the kind words. I love the opening Chapter to your novel. Very much up my street. Got a reading list as long as Death Valley and it just got longer.

    Hi Charles-

    Love your first chapter! Have you read any of the Hard Case Crime books? I just finished Bust and Slide, both are wonderful reads.
