Kirkus Gives THE KILLING KIND a Starred Review!

Writing careers are full of firsts. Moments you'll carry in your mind forever. Your first rejection (in my case, it was from Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine). Your first acceptance (also from Ellery Queen; I'm nothing if not stubborn). Your first book deal. The first time you hold a finished copy of your novel in your hands.

Today, for me, is another such milestone. Because today, thanks to Kirkus, I've gotten my first starred review. I'm honored, and incredibly grateful that they've chosen to highlight THE KILLING KIND as a book worth seeking out. Here's a taste of what they had to say:
"Who will best whom is by no means obvious in this fast-moving, witty tale of good guy versus bad guy versus worse guy."
