D.J. Adamson's, "Admit to Mayhem" had me at the title. The crackling threat of that name across the front cover ...will open up to the reader, a trip into worry and trouble, the kind of questionable happenings mystery lovers long for. Really, it struck me as a perfect title...Miss Adamson's style of writing is also a key to the success of this novel...Twists and turns, dark corners, willful misdirection are all part of the package. The clear, clean prose laid down in "Admit to Mayhem" allows, I dare say, the mayhem, to exist without feeling fraudulent, or overdone. --Rebecca's Reads
Similar to Janet Evanovich's style with the crazy character and humor throughout. Good read. --Vickie Raynor
"Only D.J. Adamson can cleverly weave addiction, dysfunctional family dynamics, an historic murder, and arson into a wonderfully delightful romp that keeps the readers smiling as much as it keeps them guessing". -- Laurie Stevens, named to Kirkus Review's "Best of 2011".
"Admit to Mayhem is a well-rounded, engrossing read that creates a memorable, believable protagonist and uses her to immerse readers in a series of challenging probes that end not in court, but in the very human realm of motivation and twisted purposes."- Midwest Reviews
