I just read your review of River of Fire. It sounds interesting. Thank you for posting it. I wonder how many more history/technical/whatever niches there are waiting to be filled by a crime writer.

Glad you liked the Patrick Easter review. I was trying to thing of a snappy description for this sub-genre but could only come up with blustery-history-mystery. Rich.
