- KIRKUS BOOK REVIEW
Another great Leodas mystery. I am an avid reader of mysteries, and this one did not disappoint. I think it could be this author's best yet. Great easy read.
Can't wait for a big-screen movie. Unable to put this great book down! Marvelous twists and turns. A must-read for mystery fans. Leodas at the top of the heap. What's next?
Five Star Review – "Once I picked it up, I could barely put it down until I finished the book. Leodas grabbed me. Usually, I can figure some of the clues or conjectures but not this time. Easy to read."
Five Star Review – "This is one of the best mysteries I have ever read. It is hard to believe what all goes on, but that is what kept me interested. I just can't imagine having the talent to write a story with so many twists and turns. I would read more by Gus Leodas and might reread this someday. The bonus is that it was free from Amazon to my Kindle."
