Editorial Reviews

Jean McCamy
In "Secrets," Michael A. Smith has given us an intricately constructed web of clues which are a challenge to evaluate and unwind.
Phyllis Fitzgerald
"Secrets" is enough to make you wonder about the folks next door. Think twice before you plant a "For Sale" sign in their yard after a party. They may know your secret.
Spencer Mastick
This is one for the whodunit lover. It contains grisly murders and mysterious happenings galore. For those who like reporter stories, the man who solves the crime is a newspaper columnist. A touch of class helps make the book enjoyable, despite the multitude of kinks and turns in the plot.
