John was introduced to Agatha Christie in the late seventies, and became a life long reader of mystery and thrillers after he read Murder On The Orient Express. His favorite book is Deliverance. His favorite authors include; Russel Blake, fellow New Jerseyan AND Hungarian Janet Evanovich, Barry Eisler, Wayne Stinnett, Mark Dawson, Lawrence Block, Max Allan Collins, and Lee Goldberg, but he'll entertain anything with airplanes, Jiu Jitsu, bad ass women with lot's of tattoos, and big manly dogs.
