An email today brought a review of "T.T. Mann, Ace Detective" published in READERS' FAVORITES BOOK REVIEW. After saying loads of positive things, the reviewer concludes, "I would recommend T.T. Mann, Ace Detective to anyone who is looking for something entertaining but not too heavy, much in line with the early Agatha Christie stories or Father Brown Mysteries." Take this to heart, folks, and rush to acquire your own copy ASAP.
