Man, it was fun writing those words. China Lake is currently number 14 on Amazon’s crime bestsellers above Harlen Coben, Lisa Gardner, Ian Rankin and Nicci French, and it’s number 122 in the overall Amazon bestseller list.

UPDATE: Now number 94 overall. And yes, I’m bragging. I’ll repent my pride later.
