    Hi, Captain
    I”m the former LM 2500 guy who wrote you some time ago. You made some recommendations on few of your Naval books, which I have since read, and everything else you have written, I thought. But somehow I missed Darkside, which I have just read and really enjoyed. Made me glad I went to Georgetown!
    I must say, you outdid yourself on your female characters-you must have been fantisizing.
    Seriously, I enjoy all of your books, especially those focused on the Navy. I hope you have a bunch more under construction. Nothing like an author who knows what he is talking about.
