The early reviews are starting to come in on my forthcoming novel, The Bone Orchard, which hits stores on July 15. (Honestly, this is the most anxious time in the publishing process for me, waiting for those first notices.)
But I got some goods news from the latest issue of Publishers Weekly which has given the book a starred and boxed review — which is pretty much the best you can hope for from the magazine. The write-up isn't online yet, but it calls The Bone Orchard an "excellent" installment in the Mike Bowditch series and concludes with words that are music to any mystery author's ears: "Thoughtful plotting and strong characters raise this above the crime novel pack."
Now we'll see if the other early reviewers agree.
