    Dear Mr. Kerns,
    Just line to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed your book. You are ome of the few people that can make one laugh, while also being a serious mystery. There were times when I felt sorry for the victims and times when I almost pissed myself laughing.
    Thank You

    I am amazed that this is only the second novel that Krebs has written. The plot and character development was so terrific that he appears to be a seasoned author. Can’t wait for more of all of these characters!!
