Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fast moving…A natural storyteller who sticks straight to the line.”  New York Times Book Review
“Boyer is up there with the best.” Boston Globe
“Rick Boyer is from Boston and he knows the town. He also knows how to write; and the combination is terrifc.” Robert B. Parker
“Christopher Lane’s unceremonious voice duplicates the persona of Dr. Adams’s cool, calculated personality as he stumbles upon the pieces of this puzzling tale. Lane collects the additional characters we meet…giving each voice a refined contrast. His storytelling supports the listener throughout this fast-moving novel.” AudioFile
