“This is the first of the Jake Matthews series and it’s a winner. Jake is a strong, believable character and someone you want on your side if you’re in the right. If you’re the bad guy, you’d really like him to forget all about you. The story line is like something ripped out of the headlines and, so the more chilling. I was compelled to keep reading, as I just had to know how the plot developed and how it would be resolved.” Peggy (Goodreads)
