Imagine speeding down the autobahn, at least 100 MPH.

This is an amazing first novel. It's suspenseful and action-packed. It grabs you from page one and doesn't let up. Monty is a wonderful character and you can't help but fall in love with him 'organically'. I hope to see more of Monty and the crew soon. Bravo on a great beginning! ...more

Once I started reading, I didn’t want to put Benders down! Mark Eric has an incredible gift for describing situations/people with just the right amount of depth to make you feel like you are right there in the midst of his story. In addition to effectively weaving an incredible intricate story, Mr. Eric includes a few “threads” into his tapestry addressing many present-day issues people of color are facing in America, using the feelings and actions of his characters to illustrate the thread
