Review by: CoffeeCat on Nov. 18, 2010 :
I hadn't read a thriller/suspense novel is quite some time, so I was looking forward to this novel. The characters were engaging and the story really kept me guessing--when you get to the heart of the story, the pace picks up even more. Despite having a three month old on my hands, I made time to keep reading and thought about the story long after I put the book down.

I'm not much of one for science fiction, but Tardif did a great job of keeping me interested and engaged in a way that I "needed" to know what happened next. This was the first book I've read by Tardif, and I'm anxious to read some more of her work.

Review by: John Zur on July 21, 2010 :
Best Book I've Read in Years!

This is one of the best books I've read in years. If you like thrills, science, mystery, history and great character development (and who doesn't!) - this book is for you.
I enjoy reading books that are based on actual facts (historic or scientific) with fully developed fictional characters, some science fiction and great suspense. I like to learn something while enjoying a thrill ride.
If you like Michael Chrichton, you will enjoy this book.
I've now read all of Cheryl Kaye Tardif's books and have enjoyed them all.
Read her books now so you can tell your friends that you "discovered" her before the world did (and they will)!
