Hope you are feeling better soon.

So sorry you are not well, Karen, get well soon. And thanks so much for posting my review, and the kind words. I really enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it to anyone - seems to me it works very well as "a novel" not just "a crime novel".

Hope you are feeling better by the time you read this.

Thanks guys. I am more or less back to my usual self though sounding a bit husky to my own ears!

Welcome KK. Many thanks for following. You might also want to keep an eye on the Crime Friend Feed room that Maxine set up at: http://friendfeed.com/crime-and-mystery-fiction

Glad you are feeling better. Those migraines can be killers.

Good seeing Maxine's review of "Red Wolf," Liza Marklund's latest book.

I do want to read this as well as her earlier books, but my library doesn't stock her titles, so I'll put this on a to be ordered list.
