I won't bore you with my bad writing, or reviewing. I will say that when I finally found Peter Robinson (a tip from a amazon chat room. I do not chat, I read). I wanted all he had written. I have tried to read in chronological order. I have read about seven books, and have not been dissapointed. I do not read two of the same authors in a row. It gives you something to look forward to. I read three to four books a week.
