—San Francisco Book Review
"This book is prat autobiographical and part suspense novel...The writing style is first person but even more than that, it's like you are sitting at the bar and [Taylor] is telling you a story. This is a whole scary as hell motion picture captured in the printed word."
"Taylor's narrative voice is rich with quick intellect and roaring humor. If one of the main jobs of a writer is to entertain the reader, then Taylor is a literary circus act...The book is a witty and thought-provoking read, and has the intimate feel of a good ghost story told around a campfire--by your most offbeat and hilarious friend."
