I am a totally jaded mystery/thriller reader. I've been there and done that with the best authors in the genre. It takes a lot to impress me and a lot more for me to give a title five stars. Believe me when I tell you that this is not one to miss. I have ordered all of Mofina's other books and I can't believe how long this has been sitting on my to-be-read shelf. Just great on-the-edge-of-your-seat writing, plotting, character development along with twists and turns galore!
This was my first book of Rick Mofina's that I read a while back and the story still stays with me! Such a great book and this is the first in his Reed-Sydowski series! After I read this I made sure that I got every book in this series and am not disappointed that I got them!
If you have never read one of his books grab this one and start right from the beginning!!! You will be hooked!
