    I’m a bit confused as to where Bobby Solomon is in the Lassiter, Solomon & Lord thrillers. That kid is too funny!

    Have read 19 books. Humor exceeds Hiaasen. Nit picks: ASA dose effect curve levels @ 10gr. Your character swallowed too many so cephalgia relief would be accompanied by gastric distress. Alcohol with a narcotic is a major no no, leading to possible death via CNS depression. I sometimes laugh so hard that I choke. If I die ahm gonna sue you…not. thank you for so many hours of entertainment and laughter. Gotta go now…Have a few more books to read.

    I really enjoy all your legal mysteries but the one I enjoyed the most was Illegial. Do you plan to write any more books about the flawed character Jimmy Payne. This was a very realistic view of a tortured soul who I’d be interested to learn more about his life moving forward from the end of the book.
