The judge in the Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards commented on Cases Closed as "...a prime example of a well-written mystery and suspense novel by someone who knows how the system works. From the first page to the last, readers will be riveted to the story and not be able to put it down." Check out my website www.henryhack.com for more information.
