“An exhilarating thriller . . . Stands alone, but is enhanced, by reading the previous two entries especially when the past comes home to roost. The story line is fast-paced while the locales are vivid. . . . A strong tale in which the hero knows he has come a long way, but learns how fast you can go in reverse.” —The Midwest Book Review on Imager’s Intrigue
