by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite
"This is brilliantly written, an incredible thriller with plenty of action and twists along the way. You might think you know who did it, but you don't and you won't know until the very end."

Atikokan Progress (Ont)
A crime thriller with a genuine Northern small-town feel by M. McKinnon. "The crimes, and the identification of (and hunt for) the killer are well paced and plotted with enough intricacy to satisfy thriller fans. There are a few false trails that have to be sorted through, and the usual police station politics to deal with. What makes the story shine, though, is the character work – Fisk has the gift for bringing people on the page to life."

"Ms. Fisk created a masterful opening scene by taking the reader into the mind of a Sociopath... Overall this was a well written story that kept me interested from page one, all the way to the end. I will definitely be reading the next installment."
Rori, Affinity eBook Press, NZ
"The way the author sucked me into the thrilling, dangerous, mysterious world still has me tingling. I stayed up until 4am reading this book because I had to know if my suspicions were correct. The setting was magnificently described, until I could feel the heat from the flames, taste the cold beer, and winced with every destruction and attack. The characters were beautifully fleshed out to the point where I the reader felt sucked into the mind of the villain, feeling the darkness crawling around in my soul and the glee whenever someone was hurt or killed. The fact that I immediately went to find the sequel so I could purchase it for myself, I think, shows the immense quality of the author's talent and work and shows why Makenzi Fisk deserves a score of 40/40."
