Bannered in Boise

After our trip to Denver earlier this year for Left Coast Crime, The Famous Author wrote about karma. He'd sold some Denver airport bonds in his youth, helped build the airport in a sense, and he ended up almost winning the trivia contest. Well, this month--old merry, merry May--the karma from our Redheads of the Week column came rolling back from Idaho. BIG MONEY, my second adventure, is one of two mystery picks at The Rediscovered Bookshop in Boise.

You can call them at 208-376-4229 if you don't believe me. Or click on the headline above, Bannered in Boise, and you can see for yourself. It's right there in Rediscovered's new online newsletter.

Who do we have to thank for this pinpoint of light in a dark night sky? A redhead, of course. Iris Cline. She met TFA and read BIG NUMBERS almost a year ago, made our first novel one of her five staff picks last summer. Now, the new one gets ranked among the top two mystery recommendations for May. Yahoo. Sounds like Iris liked BIG MONEY even more than the first. Here's what she said in the newsletter:

"Austin Carr returns in this mystery sequel and has made a big step up! No longer living in his truck, he has been to tapped to run the securities exchange office he works at. Now, his dinner companion has been murdered, his daughter kidnapped, and he is accused of co-mingling funds. Will Austin's full-boat smile be able to get him out of this? A character driven story with some inside looks at the brokerage market and a well intentioned guy who sometimes can't get out of his own way."

We love you, Iris. Big Time.
