"Flynn and Lavoie wrote Notes on a Killing as a stirring pastiche of the true-crime genre...The frost-heave complications of this conniving case get smooth-road writing by the diligent authors...a plenty good home-town page-turner." Keene Sentinel
"Their book follows the gritty (but not gory) details in the case, and despite its factual nature, the book reads like a novel." - Hippo Press
"Harrowing and haunting, Notes on a Killing will have you in its grip. As they proved with Our Little Secret, Kevin Flynn and Rebecca Lavoie illuminate the darkest corners, offering a story not only filled with twists and suspense but is also rich with heartbreak and humanity."Megan Abbott, Edgar-winning author of The End of Everything and Dare Me."With their usual narrative panache and an amazing instinct for the dramatic juxtaposition of incongruous lives, the authors have once again nailed a harrowing, larger-than-life conundrum that is too strangely wonderful for fiction and is the quintessential true crime yarn."Joseph Olshan, author of Cloudland.
"An opus...It's amazing these events happened in a sleepy little Granite State town." Springfield Republican
"Notes on a Killing offers fast pacing, suspense, meticulous research, and much more. The many faces of Betrayal form an overlay that will keep readers turning the pages of this engaging and satisfying crime novel."
Phyllis Gobbell - author of A Season of Darkness
"Kevin Flynn and Rebecca Lavoie's Notes on a Killing
is an exemplary character driven true crime thriller that is as crafty and cunning as the killer himself."

But among the surprises between its covers - and there are plenty... - are the richly developed characters and, dare we say, artful passages of writing." Concord Monitor "I was still glued to the pages, and I couldn't turn them fast enough. That's how harrowing a story this is.." Nashua Telegraph
Burl Barer, author of Body Count
