Sounds like you've read three of my books so far. As for whether I have more, have you yet read my police thriller JACK OF SPADES? That one is available now. Also, my next thriller, THE PRETTIEST ONE, comes out in the early fall. I hope you check it out. Again, Paula, thank you so much letting me know that you enjoy my work. It's very kind of you.
