    " IF you like the tv shows NCIS and Criminal Minds you'll love this book. It is serial killer with a twist or two or three. Loved it!!!!!! "

    " Terrific mystery. From Jonestown to a serial murderer to a terrorist plot, I was kept engaged. The recently widowed Dr. Patrick Bowers is trying to establish a connection with his stepdaughter. But murder keeps getting in the way of their quality time. Really well written and kept me glued to the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley Elliott Shaw | 1/5/2014

    " Read this in two days. Was amazing. I loved the twists and turns. The fact that there are three books in this series makes it even better! I cannot wait to read the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Brink | 1/5/2014

    " The Pawn was an exciting, thriller! I liked the dialogue, the creepy serial killer story and the main character's personal storyline. There were a few unanswered questions and loose ends that need tying up. I will definitely be picking up the others in the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alex Lewis | 12/13/2013

    " I've read 3/4 of this book. I doubt I will finish it. One star for writing reasonably coherently. The plot too preposterous to hold interest. The heroes and villains too superhuman/evil. Too much suspension of disbelieve required here for me. Quit, not going back. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Byron Ferguson | 11/30/2013

    " This is a great detective thriller. Free for kindle at amazon.com. Probably will buy the series. Its listed as "Christian," but don't let that scare you off. The religion is not overt- and as a thriller, it can hold its own with just about any Times Best List. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Bradford | 11/28/2013

    " A great read with some surprise twists along the way. I'm looking forward to reading future installments in this series. "

    " Best series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 5/30/2013

    " A page-turning thriller where they are trying to catch a serial killer. This is the first book in the series. I doubt I will read the second book. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Curl | 5/26/2013

    " A friend gave me this book, and I put it on my shelf and forgot about it for a year. On man, I missed out! I should have read it then and there. It's a great story, with some great writing. I'll be picking up the rest of the series here soon. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 2/16/2012

    " In my opinion this is an episode of the TV show, Criminal Minds, plus a whole lot more gore. UGH! I read the first half and could not stomach any more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 8/1/2011

    " Dan recommended this one to me. It's a bit more of a thriller than I like, but good. Little gross and scary, but I liked that I could try to guess where he was going with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 4/28/2011

    " The Prologue alone was enough to freak me out. Kind-of gut wrenching since I'm not used to reading murder mystery books. Some of the lines were a little cheesy, but overall a good read. "

    " I thought this authorr tried to put too much into the story. So many coincidences and oddities, etc. I finished the book because I wanted to see if my theory was correct, but I can't really recommend it. "
