Review by: Robert Schobernd on April 26, 2013 :
The storyline is excellent, well thought out. That said the main character comes off as a nut case at times with his constant self introspection. The editing is terrible and the writing is wordy and repetitive. I'm giving it a decent mark only on the strength of the plot. It has promise after it's cleaned up, but it's difficult to read now. Another case of a writer who can't afford an editor but can't afford not to have an editor if he's a serious writer.

Very good book well written with all kind of twists but too bad there are errors along the story (some more editing would have been nice) but a good story and good suspence nevertheless.

Review by: Mike Holloway on Sep. 21, 2012 :
Wonderful original idea for a plot. The story works really well with good interchange between the main characters but unfortunately the author has been severely let down by proof readers and editors. The story hic-coughs along with disparities and errors describing individuals, stating Brenda when it is Donna that is under discussion for instance and then mixing Jack up with Joss. [Who's this "Jason" mentioned below!! There are spelling typos leaving "lightning" as "lighting" and other stupid errors.

It is very distracting and detracts from a smooth, brilliant story. Well done the author. Boo, hiss the back up. 2 stars should be 5 if..... Perhaps others won't notice.

Review by: Chris Mathers on June 19, 2012 :
Such a great book. The story moves fairly quickly to the murder of Donna Gardener while her husband is away on a business trip. Jason, the young boy next door is quickly introduced as the prime suspect because of evidence found at the scene. I loved the way detective Dean was introduced into the story and I looked forward to the interactions between these two each time as the detective never gives up on what he thinks is the truth.
I sort of thought I knew where the story was headed, until David Chow suddenly comes into the scene. I won't give away what happens, but I never saw this part coming in the least bit, and I wondered were it all would end.
The characters were well developed and I liked the eerie feeling that crept in from time to time.
