Curious, I pick it up. ThickÃ¢â‚¬â€a generous number of pages. Interesting coverÃ¢â‚¬â€a stack of paperbacks. Its promising title is displayed more prominently than our nameÃ¢â‚¬â€another positive. No Kirkus “review”Ã¢â‚¬â€always a huge plus. Some accolades of course, but no industry blurbsÃ¢â‚¬â€ever since Nelson DeMille described Dan Brown’s “Digital Fortress” as “intelligent” I’ve been leery of these.
