I literally could not put it down until I finished…incredibly suspenseful happenings with a bombshell ending…very vivid action-packed tale…gritty scenes and language not really meant for young readers.

“ Very entertaining and well-written. I think it’s a fine novel that should find a large readership.

Mike Baldwin –

“ The eBook options are great. I have a Kindle, our daughter uses a Nook, and my husband just uses his Andriod cellphone. Thanks for a such a wonderful "on-the-edge" story that kept me tunring the pages almost  faster than I could finish reading each one!

“ I especially liked the ending - it totally caught me by surpriese - WOW - I wasn't expecting THAT!

Keep creating more - I can't wait to get your next one!
