If you've posted a Goodread's review and you are feeling generous, can you please pot it on Amazon the only review there right now is a 1 star. And I can live with people not liking the book, BUT I'd rather 100 3 star (this book is average) reviews than 1 single star review ad the ONLY thing that shows.

From the moment I picked up "The Good Thief" I couldn't put it down. Thank you for writing such an amazing book.

Cheryl Pierson Hi James,
Nice to meet you! I have a brother-in-law named James that is an attorney, too!
