“A keeper! This is a story you will want to read more than once to pick up stray bits of the story you may miss on the first reading. You’ll want to read all of talented author Aaron Paul Lazar’s books. Lots of excitement in all of them and you’ll come to think of the characters as old friends you’ll enjoy visiting with again and again.”
