Sorry to say but I have just read absolute instinct and I don't think I have ever read such pretentious self-promoting twaddle in all my life (and I have read thousands of crime novels). He can't seem to get the period correct in the way he structures the speech of his characters, ie this century or the last! Pretty boring book (the second of his I have read).

Hello everyone who enjoys depth in their novels -- kind of like a TV drama you can't blink on, much less go out to make a sandwich and expect to not miss something....wanted you to know there are dynamite....just dynamite reviews coming in all over for City for Ransom. Great reviews on AmZ., Barnes and Noble, and many others can be found by pluggin' me in at "City for Ransom" + Robert W. Walker returns the best results.
Thanks all -- Rob Walker

Thanks Norm for the kind words about City for Ransom. I put heart and soul into this book and its sequels.
The Greek publishing world just bought foreign rights so soon it will be in Greek for all you Greek readers.

Hey everyone. You need to check out City for Ransom if you want a gritty look at Chicago one hundred years ago. Course, Mr. Walker will gross you out along the way, but you'll love it.

Hello Janice -- Thanks for the feedback. Writers are a vain lot, and we never get enough thanks and cudos for all the work involved. Often the critics skewer us without a single thought to how many long months and even years go into the creation of a novel-length work, so kind remarks from readers are always appreciated. Upcoming is a book signing at Beckley, WV's CrossRoads Mall at Waldenbooks on the 25th of March. Speaking engagements after that vary, and in November the sequel to City for Ransom -- Shadows in White City will appear.

Hello Mr. Robert Walker,
I just wanted to let you know that your books are very well recieved here in the south. We all look forward to more of the same.
Keep up the great work,( Don't know where you get most of your ideals) but they are great.

November will see the second book in this series appear on shelves and the title is Shadows in White Ctiy, to be followed by City of the Absent. The book is getting rave reviews wherever the reviewer reviews, so am hoping for a real successful beginning here. Poisoned Pen Press named it best history-mystery to appear so far in 2006. Mystery Galore is going to do a Great Favorable Review as I have been contacted by their reviewer and she loved it and wanted to know the same -- when's the sequel! She is telling all to read City NOW....So thanks for your question. For a signed Ransom Note -- book plate, just visit me at my home page.

No, I was not aware of this new venture for PC. This should serve her and the Times well...sell a lot of papes and books. I am all for selling a book and for people reading. I would love to see the Times do the same for another author, say Michael Connelly or Ken Bruen. It's a sure thing for an author. What publicity. Myself I am happy to get a posting on an online bookshelf, say like at the Bogie site or Mystery shelf at Shots.

Since you seem to answer everything on this board, here's a question..Have you read the new Patricia Cornwell novella published weekly in the New York Times "At Risk"? You can read it by logging on to the NYTimes website and it runs for 15 weeks..totally new characters, settings, etc.
