Big thanks to the fun-loving Op.Cit. Bookstore Murder Mystery Club for reading and discussing DEATH VALLEY DUEL with me over lunch at the appropriately named Martyrs Steakhouse in Taos, and to Garcia Street Books in Santa Fe for hosting fellow Torrey House Press author Kase Johnstun and me.

On to northern Colorado next week as the Summer 2024 DEATH VALLEY DUEL tour rolls on!
