Editorial Reviews

Christina Baumer
I loved The Knotted Cord. The plot grabed my attention from the first paragraph and held it to the last word. I did not want to put it down. The twists and characters intrigued me to the point where I had to finish it !!! The storyline left me with many emotions such as sympathy for the young abused boys, and anger for those who were to protect them. When finished with the book, all I could say was WOW!!!
Ron McLachlan
Alistair Kinnon deserves a great deal of praise for having the courage to address this topic, that of rent boy abuse and paedophilia, one of today's hottest.

I am eagerly awaiting the sequel and have no hesitation in recommending the book. A great read!
