"I started it and could not stop. The author's writing style captures the moment of each situation and transports the reader right into the story. - Moon Mullen

"His storytelling is seamless, one chapter flows easily and logically into the next. His dialogue is spot on the way long-time partners speak to each other, very much like a long-term marriage. Outstanding!! - Anthony Argott
