Editorial Reviews


Impulse Spy is part of a 'Sonic Sleuths' series, but just because it's about sleuthing doesn't mean that anything about it is ordinary. Take the protagonist, for example. Quinn is not a professional sleuth but is an audiology student and a curious young woman whose special form of escape is detective novels. When she meets a dazzling female investigator and a man who leaves a mysterious note for her after hinting at surveillance, her life begins to change.

 Her amateur sleuthing skills fire up as she smells a real-life mystery and becomes involved in a puzzling trail of clues that stretch before her like bread crumbs, enticing her to a diner, a bookstore, and beyond. The girl from the bookstore and a series of events lead Quinn far from her studious objectives and into a world she'd only experienced vicariously in her mystery novels. Impulse Spy neatly sums up the dilemma of an aspiring student who finds something in the real world to lure her away from her goals and dreams as Quinn becomes involved in surveillance, undercover operations, challenging subterfuge, facing dark warnings that Sloan's operations may ultimately prove deadly.

Impulse Spy is all about situations which arise to lure Quinn from her carefully planned path in life. As Sloan's cases increasingly pull her away from her carefully planned academic career, Quinn finds in them an alternative that shakes up her life, challenges her deductive skills, and involves her in a mentor who has little to do with Quinn's prior objectives in life.

The lively interactions both between the characters and in their investigative encounters makes for a dynamic survey that introduces new scenarios and puzzles into a satisfying mix that keeps events fast-paced. And while the action is ever-changing, it's not so much that readers lose track or engagement as the plot thickens with the addition of setups, special company deals, family backstabbing, and mysterious messages. Because Impulse Spy excels at building tension with a myriad of subplots while staying nicely on track with intrigue and character development, readers are treated to an exceptionally involving, unpredictable story involving two feisty females who face a host of possibilities and dangers.
Impulse Spy especially excels at portraying how Quinn's sideline of mystery investigation eventually changes her own goals in life ("My future awaited, and it was no longer going to include worrying about my hypercritical coworker or trying to blend in with the background."), making for a winning recommendation for any enthusiast of detective stories which also profile personal growth and change.
