Editorial Reviews

Lori Krall
I have been a reader my whole life, and while reading "Dark Covenant" I could not wait to get to the next page. This book was very interesting and drew me closer to the book with each new paragraph. Mr. Lewis is truly a talented writer, and I would be honored to purchase the books he has to come.

Jane Smith
Former Crawford County District Attorney Don Lewis has a new thriller, “Dark Covenant,” published, and for those who like a murder mystery with a lot of twists, this is the book to read. The novel is like none I have ever read as far as the plot goes. Where Lewis comes up with the ideas and the characters is interesting. He obviously has done a lot of homework to bring in the twists and turns before he reveals the killer and the motive. The book 357 pages long and is a quick read.
Deborah Johnson
I am a little upset with you, Mr. Lewis -- I was so tired at work today as I couldn't put your book down last night. It was great. A gritty, true to life portrayal of cops and PI(s) peppered with a little romance and nail biting suspense.
You sir, are a great writer and I think you just may have the makings of a movie with the Dark Covenant. Deborah Johnson, Travelers Rest, SC

Mr. Lewis,
I just finished Dark Covenant. It was really, really, really good! I read enough mysteries that I am not usually suprised but, you got me! Well done.

As an avid mystery reader, I can highly recommend Dark Covenant. With this book, there is no skipping over sentences or paragraphs, I hung on every word. It was so touching to read of things and people who are like many I have known. As a life-long professional in the criminal justice system, I can say this writer knows law enforcement, the court, and the people who come into contact with it. I can hardly wait for the next one!

I was completely enthralled from beginning to end. If every book I read was this addictive, I would get nothing else done. Thanks, Don!!!

I don't read books too often but after reading the first chapter I could not put it down. The fast pace kept my attention which is why it only took me three days to read.

A good mystery with interesting characters will hold my attention. Couple this with a well written and intriguing plot and you have a story that will keep you turning the pages. A very enjoyable read that kept me up late to see where the next twist in the plot would lead.

Lots of intreigue. Lots of action, and a long list of visuals designed to make you gasp. Don does an excellent job of keeping you interested in the plot. Howard Orr.

Dark Covenant pulls the reader deeper and deeper into the depths of revenge murders. Why are jurors dying sixteen years after the Fabrizi trial? How many will die and why? Is there a pattern to the carnage? Mel Tripp and Jake Steel work together to put the pieces of this thousand piece puzzle together and yet the methodical killings continue. A very intricate plot masterfully done. A great read!

I read "Dark Covenant" and it was very good and enjoyable! I was in suspense the entire time, and never came close to guessing who the culprit was. I could not put the book down. I am anxiously awaiting your next book. Howard Bruce, Virginia

This is one scary story. The characters are all good, and you have absolutely no idea where this is going to end. When it does end, you'll be looking at the back page for Don's next book announcement. We all sometimes think in the back of our minds "Yea, if I was attacked, I could probably take care of myself and probably look pretty cool besides". Well, after reading this novel you may not feel quite so cocksure.

AN ENGROSSING THRILLER! READERS BEWARE ¿ E. T. Lewis¿ latest book ¿Dark Covenant¿ is a true sleep-stealer ¿ I just couldn¿t put it down until I read the next chapter, and the next chapter after that and the next chapter, etc., etc., etc. And mystery books are not my genre. The story is exciting throughout. The characters are believable and real. The reader can¿t wait to see what¿s waiting around the corner for them and him. Keep 'em coming, E. T. Kim Cooper
