I deeply appreciate the author for having
sent this book on over.
The character development is superb. As
these books progress, the characters come

If this book were made into a Halloween
movie or TV show, I would enjoy seeing
Kellan's responses to various things. In
addition to his great sense of humor, Kellen
has a knack for finding crime scenes and the putting pieces
