    Hard fall was fun to read, with plenty of action, and enough of Blume' background to make him a real person with his own challenges. I'm a fan of Robert B Parker and John D McDonald before him. Hard Fall was shorter than their stories, and not as complex, but a good read. Will definitely enjoy more of Reade's work and also watch to see how he (?) grows. Ron Smith Anchorage Alaska
