RECOMMENDED by the US Review
‘Set in contemporary Australia, this foray into the oft-examined world of serial killings manages to set itself apart from the majority of such thrillers. Corben is a skillful storyteller who intricately weaves police procedure, individual angst, and ongoing suspense into a compelling drama. The author’s dialogue is crisp and has the sound of real conversation. Her premeditated reveal of pertinent information doesn’t impede the tale’s pace. Rather, it motivates the reader to expand his or her list of potential suspects even as the principal characters are whittling theirs down. For a debut novel, Corben is off to a first-rate start.’
– Joe Kilgore, The US Review.
‘Gaylene B. Corben has created characters the reader can identify and empathize with, a tantalizing mystery with red herrings and false trails, and complex, three-dimensional antagonists. After building a logical case from the ground up, our heroes—and you, dear reader—are hit between the eyes with a surprise that will leave you breathless. Ms. Corben is a mystery writer to keep an eye on.’
– Charles Ray, author.
