I am especially sad to hear of his passing. Whenever I got my hands on a Satterthwait novel, everything fell by the wayside. My introduction to his writing was WALL OF GLASS. I went to high school in Albuquerque and had a particular connection to the Joshua Croft mysteries, but it did not end there. In short, of all the authors I have read in my life, Satterthwait is largely responsible for my inspiration to pursue writing.
I met Walter thru a mutual friend. She had met Walter when she was working as a playboy bunny bunny and he was a bartender. She dated him long before she met me. She told me he was perfect for me. We remained friends with emails and Skype calls. I will miss him. May he find peace wherever his soul is.
