Everyone who reads Old Hickory Lane, everyone who listens to the audio version, loves it. They love the story; they want more. And I have more. Two books more. Too bad that this book, just like the last one (To Inherit a Murderer) didn’t sell enough copies to warrant formalizing the next one for publication. […]
