Reviews of THE PUMPKIN EATER
“Dramatic and intelligent, this is a smart start to a new detective series.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Sam Dawson, one of the more likable characters to debut this year, is an RV driving photog with a shotgun-riding bloodhound named Elle. Not exactly ten-feet-tall or bulletproof, Sam is one of the guys who breaks cases the old fashioned way—knocking on one more door, checking one more photograph… Climb in with Sam and Elle but hang on tight because you’re in for a bumpy and breathless ride.”
- CRAIG JOHNSON, New York Times bestselling author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries and the basis for the hit series Longmire
“The story reads beautifully, great characterization and scenes. Your writing skills are at their best.”
- PETER R. DECKER, author of SAVING THE WEST
“This book is a book that you will want to read from page one to the end in a short period of time and it doesn’t disappoint.”- Lori Lewis, Laramie County Library System, Cheyenne, WY
