Review quote

'The author has accomplished a remarkable feat in writing such a work...This is an excellent debut.' - Lynk MAS

'Australian author Jay Darby makes an auspicious writing debut with Book 1 of his planned series - the Dan Porter Thriller Series. In approaching the work of a new author, several points are to be judged: Is the story involving and unique? Are the characters sculpted well enough to be credible? Is the book's premise resolved? And just as important, is the style of writing solid enough to merit stature among the many authors in the genre? The answer to each question is Yes! Strong writing in an involving new thriller series. The promise is evident.' Grady Harp, Hall of Fame reviewer
