a Four Walls review

I met a gentleman at Dragon*Con named Jeremy McCollum, who said he loved my CSI: NY novel Four Walls and would be reviewing it. That review is now online at Book Spot Central.

Money quote:

The one single thing that burned into my brain after reading Four Walls is cannoli. One of our crime scenes was Belluso’s Bakery, home of "the best cannoli in the city." Through the eyes of Stella Bonasera we get a mouthwatering lesson in the fine art of good cannoli. I appreciate good food, especially a good dessert so this cannoli section was a delight. The ultimate legacy of Four Walls, for me, is that I had never had a cannoli previously. After reading about them in rich detail throughout the book I decided that I had to go out and try one. Thus began my quest to find the "best cannoli in the city" in Wilmington, NC. I’m not sure what higher compliment can be given to the rich background of a story than the fact that it began an obsession with a dessert I had never previously had. I think it goes without saying that Mr. DeCandido is a big cannoli fan. He’s also a good enough writer to make that contagious.

When I met Jeremy at D*C, I asked him how that search was going, and he allowed as how it's tough to find good cannoli in Wilmington, something I could've told him before he started. *laughs*
