    I’ve enjoyed the Oliver Stone books so much. Will there be another after Hell’s Corner?

    • Anonymous

      I’m sure there will be. It’s a very popular series – David just has other series of books as well as standalones he tends to like to write as well. Based on his publication schedule, I expect a new one to be out in the Fall, or early 2012.

  • Graeme

    The Winner, Absolute Power and Saving Faith are absolutely phenomenal, but I liked his books better before he got into the whole “series” thing.

  • Leeners

    The Target should be under Will Robie, not standalone.

    • Brandon

      You’re right. Thank you.

  • Monica Butterworth

    I enjoyed king and maxwell. Are there going to be any more of them
