Found this at It seems to be a review written in Chinese and machine translated into English. Cook is rendered as Grill, Roast, and boil.

Author: Bruce R. Grill (Bruce R. Cook)

Bruce R. Roast’s debut fresh, Philippine Fever, is an engrossing with pleasurable prompt see, though occasionally alittle gory. Conundrum novels are usually corpse-driven, and this one and only is no elimination along furthermore its sleuth of suspects.

Haine is not over the moon around on the move to Manila, but, given that he states, “it was enhanced to troth demanding in the part, in place of be fixed in the rear of an analyst’s desk.”

Bitch (if I may):

Great stuff. I can almost match bad material for bad material, but mine comes in the original English.

I'd be honored if you took a look at my blog, which gives the inside perspective on the mysterious world of the editorial freelancer. I work for everyone from major university presses (Yale, Georgia, Tennessee) to highbrow academic presses (Westminster, Wipf and Stock) to self-publishing authors who write stuff that would, as they say, gag a maggot.

Especially, I'd like to reach out to budding nonfiction authors who need indexes written for their works. Great index = added value = increased sales. Bad index = decreased value = decreased sales. No index often means no library sales.

I look forward to hunting around your blog, and invite you to do the same at mine:
