Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Karen White’s portrayals of Southerners sound relaxed and authentic. In addition, her transitions between male and female characters are smooth, and she gives each character an engaging, if not distinctive, voice.” AudioFile
“The popular and dependable Barton has again created an intricately plotted, thoroughly engrossing serial killer tale that satisfactorily resolves the current dilemmas but leaves a stunning cliff-hanger.” Library Journal on Dead by Morning
