Sales have picked up a bit on the
Detective's Guide. Some good reviews and word of mouth, I think. Nevertheless, I would like to give it a bit more visibility. So, starting Monday morning (February 22) the kindle version of the book goes on a one-week sale for 99 cents, a big discount from the regular price of $2.99. Please pass the word on this along to police and prosecutors you know.
I also send out free review copies of the paperback edition of the Detective's Guide (and
360 Federal Crimes)
to folks with a blog or similar Internet presence who are willing to read and review the books.
Email me if you are interested.
Here's a description of the Detective's Guide from
