from Ruth Jordan

Walter Satterthwait, a terrific human and a man who expanded my love of mystery through his words. With protagonists running the gammit from Houdini to Lizzie Borden, I loved it all, these many years. Penned, typed, w.p.ed and scribed on the computer? Each book? The best book yet. The early ones are still the ones nearest and dearest.

21 years ago when this dude named Jon Jordan and I started dating I sent him a copy of Wilde West and told him, “If you don’t like this book, we don’t need to spend “in person” time with one another.

So thank you Mr. Satterthwait. One last time for all your words have given me and mine. Go gently into the night and know you will always be remembered and read by me and mine.
