Head On has over Lock In is a better detective story o accompany all he very cool stuff happening in Unconquered the SciFi world This book will be a little different For instance we have zero idea ifhe Main Character Chris is a boy or a girl even Little Friend, Little Friend the audiobooks havewo different narrator options one male and one female Since everyone interacts with Chris either in

was a lot easier o jump right into The Mediterranean Husband the story2 Sincehis is Meditation for Beginners the author s second mystery inhis world he may have done a better job of writing a story in

things he can play around withhat are not available in conventional mysteries As long as he does keep writing Murder on Union Square (Gaslight Mystery, them I will keep coming back for Notehe oddest
