Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Woods certainly knows how to keep the pages turning. Booklist
“Since 1981, readers have not been able to get their fill of Stuart Woods’ New York Times bestselling novels of suspense. Orlando Sentinel
“Mr. Woods, like his characters, has an appealing way of making things nice and clear. The New York Times
A world-class mystery writer...I try to put Woods’s books down and I can’t. Houston Chronicle 
Stuart Woods is a no-nonsense, slam-bang storyteller. Chicago Tribune
Woods glibly lets the reader stay well ahead of the legal posse tracking the killer while still keeping a card or two up his sleeve. Playful dialogue and romantic sexual escapades lighten the atmosphere. Publishers Weekly
