My first novel. Shamelessly over-the-top. I wrote it a decade ago, so of course there are things I'd do differently now. That said, it's fun and nutty and (I hope) worth your time.
Well written and suspenseful this book leaves the reader wondering until the very end. Fast paced and consistently interesting this book would make for great beachside reading.
