"[A] well-plotted and tightly written thriller." --Detroit Free Press
"Chilling as the November wind. A must for PI and suspense fans." --Charles Todd, author of Wings of Fire
"His story is so fundamentally sound and stylistically rounded that Hamilton ought to be teaching whatever writing course he may have taken toward producing this novel." --Jeremiah Healy, author of The Stalking of Sheilah Quinn and The Only Good Lawyer
