REVIEW: ‘ The Guards’ by Ken Bruen (Jack Taylor series)
I've mentioned Ken Bruen several times, most prominently here perhaps.
On Twitter, @avidbookreader was looking for book/writer suggestions. I recommended Bruen, among others.
I'd say that puts some weight behind this study: Online Reviews Second Only to Word of Mouth as Purchase Influencer in US. (Thanks @KatMeyer!)
Too bad, you know, that St. Martin's Press isn't paying attention. Or any other dying dinosaur of print, for that matter.
