“... well and truly told, vivid engrossing and edgy as life can get. The reader cares about the people, about their place ... a tale worth the telling, people worth the meeting. One of the few books I’ve read recently that I read twice – once because I cared so much how it came out and the second time for sheer pleasure.”
“...transports the reader back in time when integrity and a higher purpose in life was not merely an aspiration but an honorable resolve ... exquisitely written.”
David Baldacci, New York Times
of Last Man Standing and Absolute Power.
“...stands out for [his] ability to bring both place and character to life for the reader.”
Massachusetts Center for the Book
“ ... an absorbing, moving and thoughtful novel, rich in the qualities of character and setting that allow the reader to enter into the lives and moral dilemas he portrays.”
