Clark G. Vanderpool about his book: "The Falcon Dirk has been [...] well received by readers [...]. For every positive review on Amazon, I have had numerous emails and personal (unsolicited) comments about how much people have enjoyed the book and are waiting for the next one. I believe the only thing holding it back from a wide readership is the exposure that is so difficult to come by for Indie Authors. [...] It has a good deal of interesting historical detail in the plot and is just a good read."
