Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers have complete knowledge of all characters and their background. There are no superfluous victims or survivors. McBain uses words the way an artist uses colors to illustrate an idea. For those who read on a less complicated level, however, there is a story worth reading. An informative book with lots of excitement.”

    School Library Journal

    " This was much more complex than the last McBain I read. These are great easy reads for 99 cents. I liked the main mystery plot line, but did not like the two subplots and how they converged at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Taranto | 7/7/2013
