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

Jamie Molloy Could not put 'Pretty Girls' down. Looking forwards to more of your books!

Danielle (Dani) How many books in all do you think will be in the 'Will Trent' series? I have read all of them so far (working on 'Kept Woman') and I have read all of the 'Grant County' books. I dont want Will's stories to end!!
