W. Tinkanesh Thank you for accepting my friend request. I've enjoyed reading most of the Brennan books (I think I stopped in the middle of 'The Devil's Bones', I wasn't keen in the style you chose to write this volume). I got to watch two seasons of the TV series 'Bones' and especially like the characters of Tempe and her best friend. Recently, I got back to your writings when I picked up a copy of 'Virals'. Ah! I wish this book had been around when I was a teenager! I'll get around to read the next installment of this series. However I first need/want to read the almost 200 books I have at home as paperbacks or on my kindle...... Yes, I am an avid reader. Thank you for writing such great books. You are one of my favourite crime writers (the other one is Patricia Cornwell).
