Praise

"THE EFFECT IS A BIT LIKE ROLLING DOWN A GRASSY HILL . . . YOU PICK UP SERIOUS SPEED. . . . Writer Carl Granville – down on his luck personally and professionally – is approached one day by a hotshot publisher who says she’ll pay him a startling amount of money to turn a top secret diary into a novel. Gift from God or devilish trap? . . . The conspiracy he gets tangled in plays on some seriously topical fears."
-Entertainment Weekly

"THE BOOK’S GOT EVERYTHING A BIG ADVENTURE THRILLER SHOULD – a potentially world-shaking secret, nearly invincible villains, vulnerable protagonists on the run, romance, [and] betrayal. . . . What takes it a step beyond . . . are the seriousness of its message and the playfulness with which it bites the hand that publishes it."
-Los Angeles Times

"FRANTIC . . . NOTHING IS EVER AS IT SEEMS."
-The Boston Globe

"THIS ONE WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING UNTIL THE END."
-Houston Chronicle
