Turns out my library has that as well, so it's on hold too.
I follow your recs too

The book first came to my attention when it was featured in an Audible newsletter last month, then I looked it up on goodreads and it had strong reviews. Hence it made it to the wishlist I like to discover new authors although as it turned out he wasn't new to me after all Unfortunately due to the price tag down here of $16+ for the ebook I doubt I'll be getting it in the near future

I think releasing it under another name was the only way she was going to get fair feedback about the book but I am more than a little cynical about the unmasking. One would think keeping it under wraps a bit longer wouldn't have been all that difficult if that is what they really wanted.
