Today I have to give a little plug for a new book:
Mud Bay: A Richard Esher Mystery, by j.d. chandler, is the first novel by one of my best friends for the past 25+ years. It's actually quite good - I read a draft of it last summer and (hopefully) contributed to the final version through my comments and proof-reading.
In this exciting murder mystery set in Olympia, Wa. a private detective, Richard Esher, searches for the killer of his partner and - maybe - for D.B. Cooper. j.d.'s written several Richard Esher short stories (and part of the second novel) and has this character down really well.
So, what are you waiting for? Buy the damn book right now!
