I first started reading Dan Judson's books because I knew him in college. I figured, help out an old friend by buying his books, right? Not anymore; my sole motivation now is because they're damned good. I can't put them down, and I'm someone that doesn't normally read this genre. Based on how much I enjoyed his previous books, I pre-ordered The Water's Edge, and already have my sights set on the thirteenth of October when his next, The Violet Hour, will be released. Dan's got me hooked, and I'm sure that sometime in mid-October I'll be stumbling into work bleary-eyed because I've been up all night reading. Again.
