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." - CLARION REVIEW, December 20, 2013

More About the Author

"When I was a child, the family would go on these long cross-country drives. And believe me when I say it can get very boring, in a maddening kind of way, for a young child to share the backseat of a car with two other children for 8 hours or more, every day, for a couple of weeks. To keep the boredom away, as we drove down the road, I'd stare out through the car window and pick out a house. As I continued to stare at the passing scenery, I'd make up scenarios in my head, invent an entire family to reside in that house, and let my imagination conjure up personalities, conflicts, giving the characters not only a present, but a history, and try to picture what they did with their days, how they lived their lives.

"Writing, to me, is a natural progression of those childhood daydreams that kept me sane on those long trips across country."

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!

I haven't read a book that held my interest for the entire read in a very long time - kudos for Ms Eubanks; and a big thumbs up! I was disappointed when the book ended! I did think that the end was pulled together rather hastily, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would like to read more by this author. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves drama, mystery, a bit of the fantastic, and the imagination to think about the idea of "what if this were to actually be a possibility?".......

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.
