From the Author:

It is always exciting to me when readers tell me personally, write or e-mail me to express their enjoyment of and appreciation for one of my novels. Especially, when it has taken several years to complete the work. All the while the book is in progress, I wonder if readers will find enough mystery, enough intrigue, enough concern for my characters to hold their interest until the end. Then finally, when readers express to me their deep affection for my people and the happiness they have derived from their reading experience, I am deeply touched and graciously rewarded for my efforts.
