Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tremendous fun for those who can’t get enough of the author’s snappy patter. For Tim Cain, it’s a chance to demonstrate his ability to deal with pages of witty dialogue, and he shines, demonstrating quick vocal shifts, wide-ranging accents, and well-thought-out pacing. The result is a smoothly efficient, entertaining drawing room comedy in which not even terrorism is taken too seriously.”   Publishers Weekly
“Although the story line is fast paced and twisting, [Tim Cain]  manages to keep up a steady tempo, allowing listeners to stay on track and fully enjoy Leonard’s latest adventure.”   Booklist
