So Cold the River was named one of the year’s notable crime novels by Marilyn Stasio of The New York Times. An honor, to say the least.

Meanwhile, Robert Petkoff continues to impress with his rendering of the audio version of SCTR, winning an Earphone Award from AudioFile Magazine, which has the following to say of his performance: “This production is a huge success. Robert Petkoff hits all the right notes of bewilderment, menace, and tension as the plot thickens. He delivers an especially effective voice transformation as one character is inhabited by his demon ancestor. But most effective are the marvelous sound effects—of rising winds, a hallucinatory railroad train, sloshing waters, and a ghost violin from the dark past.”

Can’t wait to hear what Mr. Petkoff does with The Cypress House!
