  • "All will cheer the appealing Westwood as he pursues the truth." (Publishers Weekly for MIDAS).

  • "Westwood is a strong and enigmatic protagonist, well suited to the convoluted kinds of crimes that Andrews has him investigating." (Booklist for MIDAS).

  • "Like the master, Alfred Hitchcock, Russell Andrews delights in placing his unsuspecting regular guy heroes in nasty situations. And like the master, he knows how to manipulate the reader in fiendishly exciting ways. I defy you to figure out whodunnit, why they dunnit, or how they dunnit." (Janet Evanovich for ICARUS).

  • "Moves briskly...hors d'oeuvre tray of twists, a buffet of subplots and a glut of trivia, [a] chiller." (Publishers Weekly for ICARUS).

  • "Pure reading entertainment as good as you'll ever find." (Clive Cussler for GIDEON).

  • "Ludlum meets Hammett in this gripping, wildly plotted thriller...enough surprises and body blows to satisfy even a hardened mystery/conspiracy buff."
    (Publishers Weekly (starred review) for APHRODITE).
