Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ramsay is best when contrasting the smooth professional spies and military men with lively amateurs like the cranky Bunky Crispins, a fiercely independent waterman who shows that it's possible to be a patriot and a rebel at the same time.” Publishers Weekly
“Lloyd James provides an intelligent narration. Ike has a likable energy, Charlie is appropriately prickly, and Fisher sounds like a man on a mission. Ramsay’s engrossing double mystery and James’ smart reading are two good reasons to listen.” AudioFile
 “A high-concept technothriller with a folksy touch and lots of local color, a winning combination that ought to delight Ramsay fans and win new ones.” Booklist
“A fast-paced thriller that’s quite a departure from Ramsay’s Picketsville mysteries.” Kirkus
