Shots Magazine in the UK has just reviewed THE CLEANER.



Today is the official release date in the UK and Ireland for THE CLEANER. And good news for the folks there, you won't have to wait a year for my next novel. THE DECEIVED will be in bookstores at the beginning of July, just a week or so after it comes out here in the U.S.

So enjoy...and, everyone, let me know what you think of the UK cover (above).
