Free download from for my review.

I don't see the comparison to John Sanford and his famed Lucas Davenport/Prey series. Oh it's a nice try but Sanford scares the crap out of you from page one with the sick twisted things the bad guy does to his victims and definitely doesn't start with talking about marketing schemes.

I feel like I needed a cheat sheet too keep track of all the characters. I did like the tie in with all the products that Williams/Bailey did ads for with James drow

As a native Minnesotan, I wanted to like this book by a local author. The murder mystery was interesting and had enough characters to keep me guessing. However, I felt he tried too hard with the details to prove he is Minnesotan. Some of it was fun but it got to be too much, and almost distracting. Also, I really was annoyed that one of the main character's name switched from Douglas to Hank throughout the story. Maybe a nickname given his last name, but still frustrating to follow at first. ...more
This was a good read. The characters are very well-written, the dialogue flows through out the book. The story scenery is nicely described. The plot stays on track for the most part, there are only two scenes I thought were unnecessary. The ending was very satisfying but left a nice segue to a sequel.

I recommend this book for fans of mystery with some action.

I received the book for free from Story Cartel to review.

The story opens with the book's first victim with his face literally in the soup. Then there’s the fascinating look into the world of advertising and how the advertising agencies plot strategies to entrap us into purchasing a product. You can visit Twin Cities, Minnesota, through these pages.
The book has all the ingredients of a movie- sex, murder, suspense, violence, romance, humor and a climatic ending.
Read the book.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

The author seems to give too much information in spots, but overall this is a good read.
