A Twist of the Knife – The BOLO Books Review

APB – Spring 2017

From the Booking Desk:

This is the seventh post for this feature here at BOLO Books – The APB (All Points Bulletin).

As we get closer to that release date, the BOLO post will give you more detailed information on each title, but in the meantime, feel free to research these titles on your own. And remember to pre-order!
