At least you received a reply. I e-mailed Dennis a couple of weeks ago to ask about this book and to find out which other books he would have available for sale at Bouchercon, but didn't hear back. I had planned to have the local independent mystery dealer in Winnipeg pick up copies for me, but that's out because she has cancelled her trip. I'm still interested in a copy of Measures of Poison.
