What Kind of Boy Do You Think I Am?

The delightful Ann Rupe of Michigan writes: “Several other readers and myself buy, read and discuss your books and we will continue to so. We look forward to more many more books in the future but please do us a favor. Stop killing off the good guys! You introduce us to characters we love and then turn around and kill them.”

OK: Let’s be fair. I commit, um, “protagocide,” sure, but not indiscriminately. I mean, it’s not like I’m out of control or anything. I can stop any time I want.

So go ahead. Read ICE COLD KILL and relax. I’m not likely to introduce characters, get you to care about them, and then just kill them.


You can trust me. I’m a mystery writer.

  2. Is that the same ICE COLD KILL that I read? *evil grin*
