  2. Coming soon, Roy; my camera died on me as I was uploading pictures… I’ll get one posted today if I’m lucky.
    They look pretty neat.

  3. Thanks for listing my books. I wanted to let you know that the Jani Kilian series started with Code of Conduct, which was published in 1999. Rules came next. Endgame is #5.

  4. Woops, sorry about the mis-information, Kristine.
    I did actually realise the new one was #5 a bit later, but forgot to change the entry… I’ll do it now!

    Hope it’s selling well for you; any news of a sixth?

  5. I won’t be retiring to the cottage on Cape Cod anytime soon, but all the books are still in print, which means a lot these days. Barring the inevitable unforeseen, ENDGAME is the last book in the series. I may write the odd Jani short story, but I think novel-wise, My Girl’s story is complete.
