Another Cool Review

Sarah Smith read the Kindle version of The Troubleshooter and posted a number of positive comments on  She not only liked my writing but seemed surprised that the book wasn’t filled with errors.  To be fair she was not too happy about the way I portray Hannibal’s woman Cindy, but I hope she will see the character’s growth in later novels.  Because she offered such a balanced response to my novel I have posted Sarah Smith’s review on my web…
