“I really enjoyed this book. It is so different from anything I’ve ever read and I now have book 2 in line to read next.. I was 93% finished before I found out who committed the murder and why. I’m challenging the readers of this book to tell me if you can beat that.” – Martha A. Cheves, Amazon VINE VOICE Review.

“(I) strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery in the vein of Agatha Christie or Dorothy Sayers.” – Jessica C. Joiner, author of the Dare & JT Crime Dramas and the Scott McCully Espionage Adventures
