I did happen to put this in my recent list. And just last night I read a mention of it in Ken Bruen's London Boulevard, one of the many crime novels read by the narrator, Mitch.

"From the little I've read of PRINCESS NAUGHTY, I think I'm gonna find some similar traits."

I thought this book added a touch of Ross Thomas to the mix. Another good book. Is there a third book by him? Will there be? Anyone know?
