Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is the sort of thing that gives genre fiction a good name. Familiar ground is covered with sufficient depth of thought and richness of detail to keep it fresh and interesting. Barrett Whitener gives a secure, distraction-free performance that lets the story speak for itself…His characters are well defined without becoming caricatures or virtuoso displays.” AudioFile
