Sean Peters Karin,

just a quick note, to mention some of our members have joined/a thread "Buddy Read" on "A Good Thriller", all reading the first Will Trent book, which I have read.

Thought you might like to pop in the thread, read the comments.

Also read The Good Daughter recently.

Great you are still a member, and hope you will do another Q and A's at some stage when you are free.

your friend
