Hi. Wondering if you're going to take Dick Adler up on his baton pass and write about a forgotten book this Friday.

Thanks for the kind words on my own offering in PRISONER OF MEMORY, Dick. I really enjoyed your "Devil Dog" as well. Also really enjoyed BLUE BAYOU. Need to catch up with your latest.

Dick, I enjoyed your review of DEAD HEAT, by Dick Francis and Felix Francis in this morning's Los Angeles Times. I have read and enjoyed Dick Francis books in the past, but judging from what you said about the latest one, I suspect your review is more fun to read than the book.

Dick, we met a few times, years ago, while I lived in LA and attended MWA meetings. Was in LA in late June trying to set up some signings and picked uip Croaked in Thousand Oaks. Have Sleeping Dogs and Laughing Dogs in my library. I see we are both Five Star authors; I am honored to be in the company of of writers like you and Jerry Healy.

Hi, Dick,

Yes, I do remember when our books were Mystery Guild selections at the same time. Also, a poker-playing friend of mine, Jerry Turner, has always spoken highly of you. I believe you and he lived in the same neighborhood on the North Side of Chicago years back when he worked for Marshall Field's and you were writing mysteries and also, if memory serves, freelancing for Playboy, among others. Jerry is in semi-retirement now at Seabrook Island, S.C., playing a lot of golf.
I just talked to him, and he sends his best. Good to hear from you, Dick!
