What Reviewers Are Saying
"Writing like this doesn't come along often, Vivid locales, well-drawn characters and memorable dialogue help illuminate the mysteries of fate and give us a look at the ingredients of who we are." - John Weagly, author of The Undertow of Small Dreams; "A taut psychological thriller that challenges the conventions of the traditional whodunit. This novel is a fine example of the rare work that deftly blends hope and horror, suspense and substance into an exciting and thought-provoking read." - Andrew Williams, Associate Professor of English, North Carolina Central University"
