Editorial Reviews

Unqualified Offerings - Jim Henley
"... passes the key thriller test of 'I stayed up later than intended to finish it.'"
DC Accidental - Tom Devlin
" ... a briskly-paced, thoroughly entertaining thriller that lives up to the heritage of the noir genre. It’s ten pounds of style in a two-pound bag."
Splice Today - Jeremy Lott
"Strong, flawed, independent female lead [...] ? Check. Political intrigue and conspiracy? Check. Cast of characters that get just enough page time to whet your appetite for future stories? Checkmate. Somebody option this quick."
Mogolog - David Mogolov
"... a well-paced, true-to-Boston thriller with a great, original character ..."

    Gripping, engaging read!

    I loved the descriptions of the neighborhoods the protagonist visits and that she mentions the names of the roads she drives along. These little details made me feel as though I were living the novel with her instead of just sitting on the bus (or on my sofa or in my bed) reading it.

    I loved the quality of the story telling--this is the first fiction writing I've ever read from this author, though I've read his blog for years. I couldn't wait to leave work at the end of the day, because that meant I could get back to reading this book. I would sit up and try to keep my eyelids pried open at night so that I could keep devouring the story. And now that I've finished it, I look forward to reading more by this author. I hope he keeps writing and publishing.

    Great New Author

    This was a fast paced and interesting read. The protagonist never bores and is one I would love to see in future stories. Looking forward to future efforts by this author.
