"A steady-handed thriller that doesn't botch the basics."


"A fantastic read that gets more exciting and more thrilling as the story goes on. Another great book to add to the DeLand collection."
Program Manager, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

"For an overly saturated genre, it's refreshing to be introduced to a memorable protagonist like Kate Katelinson. She is filled with intelligence and spunk."
