Re: Release of Hidden in Plain Sight

My copy arrived a couple of hours ago. It looks terrific - I've started reading it, but haven't read much yet. As always, if it was written by Ellis Amdur, it is worth reading!

Got my copy last night. I had just enough spare time to get through the first chapter; I'm enjoying it so far!
