    Martin –

    Good evening! Just finished “The Interrogator’s Notebook,” and REALLY enjoyed the the story — from cover-to-cover — it was excellent! Not sure if you have Grisham, Baldacci or DeMille mainstream aspirations (the story-telling talent undoubtedly exists within you), but I hope to see / read future works!

    Again, very well done, and congratulations!

    Best regards,

    • Hi Brad,
      Thanks so much for the kind comments. I was wondering if you’d consider giving the book a shout out on Amazon? I’m working on another novel now called Sunset Blinds that I hope will be as good or better than The Interrogator’s Notebook.
