InD’tale Magazine (June)

FOUR STARS! “A fast-paced military and spy thriller that begins and ends with a bang. Excellent read for fans of contemporary thrillers.”

 Readers’ Favorite Book Review

FIVE STARS: “Filled with twists, turns and non-stop action.” DEADLINE is a “a fast-paced and exciting read, and it’s most highly recommended.”

BookLife Prize for Fiction Review

“James’s patriotic mystery features solid prose and moves at a rapid pace that will grab readers. Reporter Caitlin and homicide detective Blake are likeable and well-drawn characters. However, the crime elements of the story sometime take a back seat to the characters’  budding romance, which may be an issue for some mystery fans. Still, this is an entertaining tale that tries — and almost succeeds at — straddling genres.”

InD’tale Magazine

Solid characters with exceptional complexity that will have readers sighing with contentment at the intricacy of both the plot as well as their relationship.”
