“Revelation is tightly plotted, with twists and page-turners. The characters are unforgettable and the writing is top-notch. Poncy’s story is a modern thriller, the likes of which rivals Michael Crichton at his best. The endgame of the novel will keep you guessing...you won’t be disappointed as you finish the last, entertaining page.”
Kate Burgauer, Crystal Literary
