I just found out that David Thompson, Murder By The Book store manager in Houston, passed away suddenly on Sept. 13th.  He had worked at the store for 21 years and was married to McKenna Jordan, the store owner.

I had gotten to know him well in the last four years that I was in Houston.  He loved selling books and had started a publishing business called Busted Flush Press.

He and McKenna were chairpersons for the 2011 Bouchercon next September in St. Louis.

David will be sadly missed by his wife, family, store employees and customers.
