    Love this book

    Andy Straka has become one of my favorites. This book, like the rest of his, is short, detailed and upredicatble plots without being sleezy. This is one of my favorites

    Outstanding Story

    Extremely good story, original and well plotted. The characters are very well developed, and the primary character is very easy to identify with. But, more editing is needed, especially to clean up the ending. Proof reading seems to have been avoided, too.

    The book is a page turner. Once I started reading I could not put it down. Great read.
