“Your books are terrific. And you have two additional fans in Colorado. I gave my copies of Death at the Bend and Collingwood Fakeout to my daughter-in-law and her mother. You are a hit. They are hooked and will buy your e-books.”
Bob


“I truly loved the book… was difficult to put down and can’t wait to see what Jack Beer does next, although I am thinking it would be safer for him to just serve coffee!” – Lynda Hillman-Rapley, Lakeshore Advance, Grand Bend, ON


“Death at the Bend’ is soooo good…! I am Jack Beer’s number one fan now and I can’t wait for the next…what’s gonna happen?” – Pam, Clinton, ON


“I just finished your book, and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it.  It was a really good read, and I look forward to meeting the characters again.  I would never have guessed that there are other birders/golfers out there.  I don’t think we’re very common.” – Donna


“I have gotten into Death at the Bend and am thoroughly enjoying it!! – I love mysteries, they were the staple of my GO train reading for many years – I believe that either Raymond Chandler and/or Ross McDonald had some Canadian roots – you are following a great tradition.” – Pete


“Hello, Rick. A short note to tell you that I enjoyed your novel very much. My usual list of authors include John D. Macdonald, Harlan Coben, G.M.Ford, Andrea Camalleri, Michael Connelly, Kinky Friedman, C.J.Box, Brad Smith and James Lee Burke. And of course, I’ve read and re-read Donald E. Westlake over the years. I’m currently reading No Such Creature by Giles Blunt. Now you know I like a good mystery. Your novel stands with the best of them!” – Ken


“I read the 1st chapter last night…..This morning I started in at Chapter Two and have kept going all day, except for meals and shoveling snow. You deserve tremendous credit for your characterization, dialogue, and the speed and complexity of the plot. This is a first class mystery, in my view, but then I number among my favourite authors only James Patterson, Robert Parker, Tami Hoag, Tess Gerritsen, Ian Rankin, Stuart Woods, Quinten Jardine, Dick Francis, John Francome, Jack Higgins, and Clive Cussler, to select those whose genres are similar. Congratulations on your work, and thanks for a fine day’s entertainment.” – Ted


“Rick, what a great book!  I just finished it tonight – intrigue, humour, love and brawls – what more could you ask for?  And that Jack Beer is one funny guy.  He made me laugh out loud. (and yes, please feel free to use this as a testimonial). Thanks for a fantastic distraction over the holidays.  Looking forward to Jackie’s next adventure.” – Scott, Goderich, ON
