"Mosquera weaves a tale of suspense through a clandestine world, crafting an engaging read that's not easily put down." - Kirkus Indie

"In addition to a compelling protagonist, the intriguing, well-developed plot filled with international politics, conspiracy theories and modern science, together with a crisp narrative make for a suspense-filled, fast-paced thriller. SLEEPER’S RUN boasts a riveting plot and compelling protagonist worthy of becoming a sleeper hit." IndieReader

"Henry Mosquera has written one of the most fast-paced books I have ever read. You will be enthralled with the action and adventure." - Readers Favorite

"... [Sleeper's Run] plot is phenomenal. The constant threats and reveals left me furiously flipping the pages, reading for hours on end because I "had" to know how it all turns out. If you like spy thrillers at all, you should pick this book up, but I recommend you only start reading if you have lots of time on your hands. This is one that you will not be able to put down." - San Francisco Book Review

"Mosquera pulls readers in with intoxicating descriptions of his country, capturing Venezuela's allure even as he portrays its violence and poverty. He also includes shrewd commentary about the nature of the Venezuelan government and its relations with that of the United States. He weaves these points deftly into the story line without bogging down the plot. Indeed, the novel keeps one guessing until the very end, with enough layers to satisfy even the most staunch conspiracy theorists. Sleeper's Run will be of interest to anyone who enjoys international intrigue." - ForeWord Clarion Reviews

"'Sleeper's Run' may be a book that many will find so compelling that they will read it in one sitting. For me, the rapid pace of the action was so intense I had to take breathers, however, I found myself quickly drawn back into the mêlée." - Reader Views

"Right off the bat, Sleeper's Run had me on the edge of my seat. The plot is extremely dynamic, full of energy, at times surprising, and adamant that the reader continue reading." - Scriptshark

"Sleeper’s Run is a debut novel that is full of suspenseful non-stop action, intrigue, espionage, the blackest of black ops. I fell headlong into the story and didn’t want to come back to reality until it I closed the back cover. Mr. Mosquera has an eye for detail and a deep knowledge of politics, security, IT, weapons, PTSD, and seemingly every other subject that makes up a great thriller of this type. The characters were fully developed and they felt so alive that you felt they were right next to you. An intense and compelling novel, Sleeper’s Run will make you look twice at the people around you. Mr. Mosquera has created a novel that will be a guaranteed sensation!" - The Bibliophilic Book Blog

"All I have to say is wow! I was pleasantly surprised by the book and how much I really enjoyed it. Its fast paced and it literally sucks you in from the get go. I actually managed to read this in a day and a half and trust me when I say I had a hard time putting it down and really wanted to stay up to read it until I finished it but I couldn't. Those are my kind of books when it sucks you in and you can't put it down.
I have to say that I could actually see this being made as a movie because I think it would be fantastic on the big screen. Henry's writing is perfect with just enough description to make you feel like its real." - Cindy's Love of Books

"Sleepers Run by Henry Mosquera really took me by surprise! It’s the most fast paced intrigue I’ve read in a long time. Truly from page one I was anxious to see what would happen next." - Babas Farm Life

"I highly recommend that you pick it up. Henry Mosquera writes with a driving intensity and continues an exciting pace until a surprisingly poignant ending. Two thumbs way up!" - Simply Stacy

"The book is 350 pages filled with suspense! Right from the start of the book you will be on the edge of your seat. It’s filled with surprises, energy and great dynamic. Henry describes location and fight scenes in such great detail that you really feel like you are there watching Eric Caine go through his journey. It’s a great freshman book from the author and I really wish it hadn’t ended, I could have just kept reading it! I’ll be on the lookout from more from Mosquera because I see big things in his future!" - Being Alison

"For those of you who enjoy this genre, Mosquera is definitely an author to keep an eye on. This is his first novel, but I foresee several more in the future. He writes like a veteran and keeps the suspense rolling from cover to cover." - Minding Spot

"My Thoughts: Wow! This book is very intense--I simply couldn't put it down. I read way into the night but I simply wanted to know what was going to happen next. I felt the author did his research when he wrote this book for he was able to write intelligently about a variety of topics and tie them all together perfectly. He develops the characters so effectively and intimately." - My Springfield Mommy

"I found “Sleeper’s Run” to have an interesting plot and intriguing characters. Mosquera does a good job with character development, most particularly with the main character, Eric Caine. I was drawn in right away to the story in the opening pages and my interest was held throughout." - Rebecca's Reads

"The author does a fantastic job of keeping this book very fast-paced. It is hard to put down as it contains everything, including how to run from the law and how to bring the law to you. The book will remind readers of early Clive Cussler novels when his hero, Dirk Pitt, got in and out of trouble in record time but kept the reader’s attention at all times. Eric Caine is a real hero who isn't full of bluster - this is a man who doesn’t know, or care, that he is a hero." - Feathered Quill Book Reviews

of life in their own way, just like writers deal with
archetypes. There are only so many stories that you can
