    Santa Fe New Mexican

    Publishers Weekly

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

    " Blech! I'm always on the lookout for new mystery novelists, but this won't be one of them. It started out with an interesting plot line, but went off on a totally separate parallel plot line that was not remotely interesting that confusingly never hooked up with the first plot line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryle Fisher | 8/22/2013

    " KEVIN KEARNEY IS A FAVORITE CHARACTER AND THE AUTHOR CONTINUES TO PUT HIM IN BELIEVABLE SITUATIONS. THIS BOOK BRINGS BACK A CHARACTER FROM HIS CHILDHOOD THAT HE NEVER REALLY LIKED AND WHO TRIED TO GET HIM INTO TROUBLE EVEN THEN. THE FILMING OF A MOVIE DRAWS KEARNEY INTO THE PLOT. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet Ellner | 7/25/2011

    " For a Michael McGarrity/Kevin Kearney easy read, this was a good one. A little tension and intrigue is added by way of a side-story involving the sabotage of his military wife's career by her superior. Unfortunately, that angle is left hanging, and, as far as I know, sequels don't resolve it. "
