  1. I am absolutely thrilled ~ thank you, Deb! I've already finished CEMETERY JOHN, and I have to say, it was amazing. I learned so many things I didn't know about the Lindberg kidnapping, and what Mr. Zorn reveals is astounding. Thanks again for holding this drawing. I love some of the 2013 TBR suggestions your readers have made!

  2. Kathleen - you're photo album will on it's way soon. CEMETARY JOHN sounds great. Can't wait to dig in. Deb
