    I heard there wasn’t going to be another Korsak books, is that true? I enjoyed the All Seeing Eye the references to the other Thurman books were good. Really enjoyed Annie’s big fat fanny dig. Although I figured out the villians before the end I was caught by the twist with the sister. So it was worth it. Keep the books coming!
