    Yes. I love that Jimmy is his own person now, and gets his own stories. You go, bro.

    And I see how you did that “free story to coincide with the novel release” thing. Nicely done.

    This is good. Real good. – So, I got The Disappeared when you put it up on sale, and I got Sacrifice in the MegaStar pack, and I’ve been curious about Smokey Dalton so here’s this one. And that makes three series and I have to decide where to start spending my money. It’s like you do this deliberately!
