   Down the Darkest Road is turned in! The sequel to Cold Dark Places is my forty-first book, and as usual it didn’t turn out like I expected. Dylan Castle was ten years old when his friend was killed when they went to the woods at the end of their road one night. Deputy US…

It’s here, it’s here!! LOL, excuse the hype, but oh my gosh what a journey. But you can now download the newly reformatted and re-packaged book 2 in The Mindhunters from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and Apple. I still have to do a little behind the scenes work to sync the new copies up…
