Review by: Waffle10 on June 23, 2014 :
Gritty, yet compelling, characters. The author has a great grasp on the suspense/crime genre, so much so that my heart started beating fast toward the end, as I had no clue what to expect. His writing is unpredictable, something I appreciate. Don't miss out on this guy's talent!

Another reviewer mentioned dangling participles. Looks like that's been fixed because I didn't see any.

Review by: Martin Peltz on June 22, 2014 :
Talented, gritty, the scene and atmosphere are set very well.
What I also like is that the reader is given room to complete the picture.

I think it would be easy to get this genre wrong; but Phillips has nailed it!
