"This book was a gripping, and gritty police thriller that kept me rapt in its pages until the end." --Lisa Brown-Gilbert.
"Ronan McCullough is an interesting protagonist, and you will want to keep on reading after the intriguing beginning." --Peter Senftleben. The author, Eliot Parker, is a West Virginia native who teaches at Mountwest Community College in Huntington, West Virginia. He earned an M. F. A. in creative writing at Eastern Kentucky University.
