“Hard-boiled action…Camaro Espinoza, who did tours in the Middle East, is tougher than an army boot….it’s deeply satisfying.” — The New York Times
“Camaro is solitary, vengeful, and fond of beer and motorcycles—a female "tough guy" who defies stereotypes with engaging bravado. Hawken calls her ‘a lean, mean thrilling machine.’ He’s nailed it.” — Booklist
