Well, in addition to what Publishers Weekly called
"..a nifty puzzle featuring Native American casinos,
mysterious Russians and a stinky slow-blooming flower"
buried in the pages of The Big Dirt Nap are the names
of some of the mysteries that I either read or bought while
I was writing the book. This was a little homage to some of
the people I met on my first book tour and some of the books
that inspired me.
There are dozens of them and whoever finds the most
