I am angry that I read over 500 pages and on 571 the book ends inthe middle of the stiry. I am not able to find part two anywhere. How does an author get away with this. Until part two comes out I will not read anymore if his books. I would hate to have this happen again.

Had me from the first page! I have two regrets though...1) that I didn't read "An Okinowan Affair" and 2) there isn't a continuation past page 571...why I wonder?
