New Reviews

I loved the first book in the Hitman Novel series so much, I happily jumped into the second, Last Breath, expecting great things. Unfortunately an issue I had with the first book but was able to ignore became so extreme in the second, it pretty much took over and my enjoyment decreased exponentially.


The most successful Union spy of the Civil War wasn’t a dashing gentleman on horseback, or a Yankee femme fatale to match the Confederacy’s glamorous Belle Boyd. It was middle-aged Richmond socialite Liza Van Lew, whose achievements included placing a spy in the Confederate White House, absconding with and secretly burying the body of a Union officer, and facilitating a mass breakout from Richmond’s Libby Prison. This outstanding novel, meticulously researched and beautifully written, is her story. It is a great read for anybody interested in the Civil War, in gender history, or in a riveting adventure story starring a marvelously dedicated, competent, and engaging heroine.
