    Outstanding first attempt!

    Hard to believe this is Mr. Griffin's first book. Fast-paced plot and interesting characters make this a good read.

    Columbo Strikes Again !

    Dennis Griffin writes with such ease, that he makes the words flow. He tells his story in a very natural form wihout adding filler words as some authors do, just to add pages. In his books The Morgue and Red Gold, he keeps you on the edge of your seat with suspence, yet making you want and almost lust to read more. Griffin brings to light some deplorable human acts that may of and still can be done in this society, all for the sake of money, power and greed.

    Adirondack Reader

    The author tells this story with directness and down to earth. You feel that you are along side John Grant as an observer, listening to the conversations that take place. It is a believable tale of what can happen in an organization and the power that some of the main characters display, a power that is not always ethical or proper. John Grant pursued his investigation with vigor and professionalism in the highest tradition of State Servic I read the book twice. It is an excellent read and educational, too. I enjoyed the Author's writing style.

    Griffin's storyline is excellent.

    I enjoyed Griffin's book immensely. The story was gripping and self-propelling which made for a very smooth and entertaining read. I enjoyed the twists and turns through the journey from initial investigation to justice. I had the pleasure of conversing with Mr. Griffin at a B&N book signing. He talked a bit about the book he is currently writing. I look forward to reading it as it sounds even more spectacular than his first. Mr. Griffin's writing style is direct and unemcumbered; yet contains enough descriptive prose to give the reader a good picture of the events presented. For anyone looking for a unusual and suspenseful story you must read 'The Morgue'.
