We first met Todd Borg at the Valhalla Holiday Fair, where we performed Holiday Music during the festivities. What a hiliday treat to find Todd at his vendor table full of good reads! So, we bought signed copies of his books for Tom's mom, the world's biggest fan of detective books and a big lover of dogs, too! Super Highly Recommended! Todd's mystery thrillers get 5-Stars from us and Tom's mom. -- Tom and Mary Kay
