Big Fan Says "I HATE YOU!"

The first post-publication feedback I received on my latest Sebastian McCabe – Jeff Cody book certainly caught my attention.
“First let's get this clear I HATE YOU!” Deacon Ken Ramsey wrote to me after reading Bookmarkedfor Murder.

Is that any way for a man of the cloth to talk? And he claimed to like the series! But I kept reading:
“I promised myself I was only going to read one chapter a day no matter what. This as opposed to my usual quaffing it down like a Big Mac meal. I couldn’t resist and went and finished it today. In my humble opinion this is your best work to date! I actually didn’t figure it out until late into the story.”

Admittedly, he’s prejudiced. Deacon Ken is one two experts – both Sherlockians, retired military officers, and former sheriffs – whom I occasionally ask questions about police procedure. (Although my books are not notable for their realism, I do try to avoid situations that would interfere with the willing suspension of disbelief.)
So how about a more objective review? Or several?
