Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

"This finely wrought sci-fi/mystery/thriller explores the themes of rebirth and renewal through characters on the run and those who come to their aid. The story begins in medias res: tossing the reader squarely into the midst of the action. Lost in a blizzard with her young daughter Valerie, badly hurt, the FBI in hot pursuit, Jill Braedon sends the child off into the raging storm alone. Valerie stumbles into the cabin of John Mills, a former rock star-turned-recluse since the deaths of his wife and child. Mills, who walks with the aid of a cane, ventures out into the storm and surprisingly finds Jill alive. As she recovers, puzzles gradually unravel, only to expose yet other mysteries. Superbly crafted and flawlessly executed, Eubanks doles out both plot and back-story in small doses, expertly keeping readers turning page after page. This book is a study in how to show and not tell a story, and should be required reading in creative writing courses. ..Eubanks utilizes a variety of techniques such as character interaction and dreams to fill in past details without bogging down in exposition. Perhaps the most engaging occurs as Jill relates her story to Mel Talbot, a computer hacker par excellence that Mills has summoned to help. After enough explanatory interaction to build Mel's character, Eubanks shows us her story, a device often used in film. "This is a phenomenal first novel; an excellent read for anyone who loves mystery, and would-be writers who want to learn exactly how it's done."

Review

"This brisk and original cat-and-mouse thriller exceeds expectations with unpredictable results...John Mills, a reclusive iconic British singer and songwriter, is living in self-imposed solitude until Jillian Braedon and her five-year-old daughter, Valerie, show up at his isolated home during the middle of a blizzard. Jillian, on the run from the FBI, is keeping an unbelievable secret that John slowly deciphers in this amalgam of mystery, science fiction, adventure, and romance...Author Jamie Eubanks unfolds the story a brisk pace. Present events play out alongside each character's backstory, or in the case of Agent Andrews, his mysterious lack of backstory.  The plot keeps the reader guessing whether the bad guys will discover John's hidden house guests before Mel Talbot can smuggle them away to safety. It's a game of cat and mouse with unpredictable results...Fans of mysteries and thrillers will find that this book exceeds any expectations they may have had going in, primarily due to its unconventional plot line." - FOREWORD REVIEWS

I've read this twice already and will read it again. This definitely goes on the "read again in six months to 2 years" stack. The rich amount of details makes rereading this still interesting and entertaining. From start to finish the story draws you in and keeps moving.

I chose four stars over five due to the rush. This book is a fast read. It was great enough to stay immersed, but there were times when I had to reread the previous sentence or paragraph to catch what I read over. The rush wasn't enough to discourage me from reading this book; it's a great read. But to those who dislike fast pacing, fair warning.

Eubanks is a fantastic storyteller who kept me guessing with twists and left turns until the end . . . which is the other reason why I gave this book four stars. The ending, like the pace of this book, felt rushed. My mind stumbled over the final scene as I crossed the finish line to the end. I also felt like there's a scene missing between the falling action and the end. It was an ending that seemed out of place with the plot overall. More like an afterthought after making it through the exciting rush of the story.

To those curious to give this book a try, feed your curiosity. Go for it.

This book offers an amazing story line that held my interest, in fact there were nights I didn't want to put it down. It is a suspense/thriller with a underlying love story. From the first chapter until the last page, this book will keep you intrigued and the shocking ending was an added bonus. Would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspenseful books that keep you guessing till the end! Great job Jamie Eubanks, keep them coming! You definitely have someone who will continue to read your amazing books!

Oh my gosh! I hate writing this review because I want to encourage new writers and it isn't that I wouldn't try reading Jamie's second or third book. The problem was that I just couldn't get past some of the word choices and began wondering if perhaps this is a poorly translated foreign novel. For instance, "The woman crumbled over on her side." Is the author aware that crumble means breaking into pieces? A brick wall might crumble but unless this woman is made of fissile material or frozen solid she isn't going to crumble when she falls. Another example: "....as she hitched for air." I really can't say much about this word use as I'm befuddled. It is ironic that one definition of 'hitch' is: to introduce into a literary work especially irrelevantly or by obvious straining. The review on the front cover says this book is superbly crafted and flawlessly executed and I am sure that is a worthy goal, one that I hope this writer will one day achieve. But, I'm sorry to say, this has not been achieved here. Beyond word choices I also had trouble with structure of the descriptions. We jump from a description of the vehicle parked in the garage outside to the dimensions of the upstairs bedroom while the main character stands before the downstairs fireplace. Who is seeing this? Who is telling me this? Do I need to know that the bedroom is a generous thirty by thirty-five? I couldn't finish the book but wish the writer well. It was a good try. I hope to see improved attention to detail, editing, and superb crafting in the next work.

Intriguing from the beginning and am so glad I stayed with it. The book is a worthy first novel. I liked the out of the ordinary plot, the paranormal additions, the tension, eventual love scenes, the brave little girl, Valerie, the characters - especially John, Jillian, and Mel, and the fact that I never knew what was going to happen next. Looking forward to Jamie Eubanks' next novel.
