WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT RICHARD WREN'S BOOKS.
• “Richard L. Wren masterfully merges disparate worlds — first in CASEY’S SLIP, where he forged a bond between a sailor and a surly biker. And now he’s done it again in JOSHUA’S REVENGE, throwing a charming, talented Yosemite park ranger in the middle of a Chinese drug ring. His characters are always vivid and vocal, and his plots have more crags and crevices than the backside of Half Dome. Fun to read.”
— Angela Hill, OAKLAND TRIBUNE
• “With nimble wit and deft action, author Richard Wren propels the characters of his new romantic mystery novel across the terrain of Yosemite National Park and the imagination of his readers into the territory of his second novel. His action scenes draw the reader in.
— Rita Ayral, book club president
