  1. I read a blurb on Goodreads and this story looks riveting. A former prisoner released from his long stay at a psych hospital disappears and murders happen soon afterwards. I want to read to find the connection and follow the clues in this mystery.

  2. I really love the book cover and the synopsis has intrigued me, this sounds like an excellent book and series. Thank you for posting

  3. W.F. Cracker Town sounds like a great mystery for me to solve and I am looking forward to reading it! Thank for bringing your book to my attention and have a wonderful holiday season!
