Did you know that you could make a crown for your tooth and make a secret compartment inside? Well in the book, Crown Deception by Howard Lufburrow, that is exactly what happens. This book involves smuggling, spies, murder and mystery.

Here is a brief summary of the book.

The story begins in the little town of Triumph, Texas where Jake Patterson DDS is called to the county morgue to consult on a dental anomaly discovered during a recent autopsy. Although he expresses his distaste for the morgue, h

I love mysteries, and thrillers, especially the kind that actually take you right there in the middle of it all, so much that you can almost smell the blood, and the coffee and see each character in person.

Hmmmm…a tooth crown with a secret compartment? Sounds a little sneaky, huh?! Well, in the book “Crown Deception” by author Howard Lufburrow, that is what you get! Murder, mystery, spies and lots of sneaking around!

My next book review is a great book by Howard Lufborrow, called "Crown Deception". The book is about a young dentist, Jake Patterson, in small town Texas who is asked by local police to examine a strange symbol on a dead man's tooth at the local morgue. In the same town, Kate Williams, a manager at a large company based in the Netherlands, finds out that something is being smuggled into her lab. Jake and Kate are brought into the mystery together when they find themselves on the same flight to t

Usually we perceive dentists as these doctors that all they want to do is hurt your mouth, therefore we avoid them. What a great idea this was for Howard (a DDS) to write a story perceiving dentists as more than just a person who needs to work on your teeth. This story finds the two main characters, Jake and Kate, in an whirlwind adventure that leads them to discover espionage, smuggling and a murder! They are two individuals who come from two different fields of work who get mistakenly involved ...more
