What people are saying
about The 9th Hour

"A fiendishly intricate and entertaining work of New Mexico crime. A glimpse through the eyes of four points of view gives this dark page-turner an extra layer as we circle closer and closer to an ice-cold killer."
Santana Moreno, University of Tromsø.

"Tense action and complex psychological motivation is woven into a wonderfully satisfying novel."
NY Times Bestselling Author Kristin Gleeson - Author of the Celtic Knot Series

"An intense, superbly crafted reading experience. I guarantee you'll go on reading well past the ninth hour."
Jim Pingelly, Kingdom Writing Solutions

"Gripping, innovative, brutal and yet redemptive. This is crime fiction with a serrated edge and a brilliant sheen."
Marco Storey, author and speaker
