Amazon Review By T.L. Fields:
I.LOVE.THIS.BOOK. This book is my very favorite adventure from R.S. Crow to date. The characters that we get to know and love in this book are simply delightful. I laughed, cried and cheered out loud for Frank and his daughter. Crow’s work continues to evolve and mature with each of the books he offers to us. His stories weave familiar characters and thoughtful insights throughout the “series” and after finishing each one, I feel that I have learned a valuable lesson…often times it is simply a shift, much like the scrubbing of a dirty window, to more clearly see how we treat others.

Amazon Review By J. Mericle: Most of our worst fears never become our reality. But sometimes, for some people, they do. There is no waking up. How does one cope? How do I know what my actual response would be to the physical abduction of one of my beloved children? This is not a road I have ever allowed myself to mentally travel. Certainly not to all of it’s possible conclusions. R.S. Crow takes us down that road. In a perfectly paced, beautifully written novel, we walk with Jeremiah and Bri as they deal with the worst of all parents’ fears. True to form, Crow holds forth a mirror, dark with shadows, in which we behold things conveniently hidden in our own nature. This story is not easy to read. But it is needed. Read it.

Amazon Review By Christina:
Hauntingly dark, a bit graphic at times, well written, raw, real and compelling. It draws you in and leaves you wanting more. Loved the blurred lines between the dream world and reality. A story that will stay on your mind long after the last page is turned.
