What they’re saying about it:

“I bought Ken’s first book as a Christmas present for my daughter and when I saw this one come out wanted to read it. I have to say I was not disappointed. As a homicide detective, Ken Lang takes us right into the heart of the story with descriptions that allow readers to visualize what is happening right down to the status of the body to the type of murder weapon. Definitely looking forward to the last book in the series”–Amazon Reviewer
