Hank Phillippi Ryan

And Let me say… The book is fabulous!

I don't know Jeff, but my heart goes out to him and his family. So much loss when your house burns! Photos and memories and irreplaceable mementoes. Thank goodness no one was physically hurt.

I wouldn't know, Hank. I didn't sit outside the coffeeshop reading it instead of going in and getting on with my edit. Nope. Not me.

BLAME is already on my Kindle and as soon as I deliver my WIP -- soon, soon -- I'm planning to get right on it!


BLAME is one of the best domestic suspense tales of the year - last few years actually. I loved reviewing it and hope that it is a grand success for Jeff. He(and his family)deserve it.


I must admit, I only know Jeff through the Stay at Home mysteries he wrote at Jeff Allen. I loved them and wish there had been more. Obviously, I need to get more of his books and read them.


Blame is absolutely wonderful. I knew Jeff would write well, but this was excellent. I usually would have waited for a library copy, but I ordered it as soon as I heard about the fire.

Oh, Jody, that's just what we hope everyone will do! Thank you!

And Kristooher, he must be so thrilled with your review! Xx

I met Jeff at Bouchercon years ago and loved the Poteet books. Jeff is one on the nicest author I have met in my 30 years of attending mystery conventions. He is the kind of guy that you are so happy that such a class guy has had such success. A fire is a terrible thing. My house was completely destroyed in Katrina so I can understand a little. The way I have been helping Jeff all of these years hS been to buy all of his books.

Elaine Viets

I totally agree Jane, and condolences on the loss of your home.

Jeff Abbott

Thank you all so much for the very kind words and for the offers of help. The outpouring of concern and love has been overwhelming. My family is doing okay, we take it from day to day. Next week we move into a lease house, which will be good to be settled in as our house is rebuilt. And I am more grateful than I can say that readers have embraced BLAME. I am so glad that people have enjoyed the book. And so grateful to the wonderful Femme Fatales for writing about my family with such kindness. Thank you again.

Elaine Viets

Wishing that long road back is as short as possible for you and your family, Jeff. Stay strong and keep writing. Wishing you much success.
