"A splendid tale of love and intrigue in a dangerous country...superb." -John Coyne, author of Long Ago and Far Away and 25 other books of fiction and non-fiction.
FAST PACED, FUN this is a really good mystery and suspense novel that everyone will love. The story is really cool and you cannot predict what will happen next. I really love suspense/mystery novels where I cannot guess what will happen, no matter how hard I try. The way this book is written makes the reader feel satisfied. There was a constant hum in my body when I was reading it. I could not wait to read till the end to see what happens. It was a complete novel that did not leave me wanting. A very well written suspense novel that I enjoyed very much.--Five-star review by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite *****
"THE GIRL IN THE GLYPHS presents with a breathtaking cover. It sets the tone and the genre beautifully and it is really quite captivating for any reader. In fact, the over-all quality is well above average and this alone made it a pleasure to read. Often times, when there is a couple sharing in the writing and production of a novel, it can get sloppy or have a choppy type writing style. But, these authors have done a fantastic job of weaving this tale together and making this one a great pick. The story appeal is interesting, dark and fun all rolled into one. Just a really smart entry that is sure to entertain--as are the well-crafted characters throughout. Fantastic use of mannerisms and quirks without getting repetitive and awkward." Writers Digest.

I enjoy reading interesting things on my kindle and I found Edmonds' first book interesting - so I tried again!
As I sipped my coffee and read my copy I wanted to make fun of that fact that our heroine, the lovely Jennifer, has an awful lot of time for men while she is busy being such a badass and why is that? When! It hit me that all the badasses in all the books have time for such romantic shenanigans. Therefor... this is perfectly believable.
Once again Edmonds' writing has me traveling to places I've never been and feeling as if I am really there, a true task for a writer that he (I can now say) "always nails".
This book is fast paced enough to read while on a treadmill, but I recommend you read it while laying about, sipping something tasty.
About a year ago I dropped a few bucks on unknown author (to me, anyway) David Edmonds, based on a short plot description I found on Amazon. Then I was in for few long nights, up to my neck in turmoil, conflict and fisticuffs as I tried to figure out how hero Markus was going to get out of the jungles of Peru, win the girl, and heal the dozen knife and bullet wounds he sustained along the way. Just as we (Markus and I) were finally recovering from the rollicking thrill ride Edmonds titled “Lily of Peru,” I find out he has ANOTHER adventure, featuring a woman in the lead role. Damsel in distress, Jennifer McMullen Cruz, just twenty four years old, has gotten herself in more trouble, in deeper doo doo, and with fewer AK-47s to battle her way out, than Markus!
The plot is complicated, mysterious and packed with unexpected twists, mystery, betrayal, ghosts, caves, pirates, and, uh…well I could tell you the plot, but then I’d have to kill you. It would also be good if you read it with the assistance of a travel agent, as poor Jennifer has to log a lot of miles in an assortment of countries, as she searches for proof of ancient aliens, mysterious cave drawings, buried treasure and, of course, true love. But wait! There’s MORE! She has to do all that while simultaneously fleeing murderous tomb looters, armed bandits, a cheating husband, and ghosts. Along the way she gets to dance naked in front of a fire, find fame as a successful explorer, disguise herself (very successfully), as a hooker, and find out what it feels like to kill in self-defense. Pretty good, I’d bet.
And just when all seems lost, Edmonds takes his final swing at the reader, and…Well, I could tell you what happens, but…
Traveling back and forth from Washington D.C. To Nicaragua, and visiting an uninhabitable island, she defends herself against gold-searching grave robbers. Although married to a cheater of a husband, she has a couple of romances, gets pregnant and studies for her Ph. D.
Every time we think she has succeeded, she succumbs to another calamity! With lots of twists and turns we experience excitement from chapter to chapter, never expecting the end result.
It is truly a great novel with a thrilling plot in various cultural settings.
