Riveting Read
As a 61 year old, it was an incredible treat to find such a feisty steel eyed older female heroine the likes of Brigid Quinn. This tough as nails ex-FBI agent is the principle character involved in a homicide case that was never completely solved and involved one of her rookies. The suspense was maintained from the startling opening to the surprise ending. This has GOT to be a best seller and a made for movie or TV series! Run out and read..You won't be sorry!
Shelby L. (Hamden, CT) (12/22/12)

Couldn't put it down
Hooray for Brigid Quinn and her creator Becky Masterman. As the title implies, Brigid will not "go gently into that good night" although she has been forced to retire from the FBI. At 59 years old she has created a quiet life for herself and husband but is drawn back into an unsolved case when the police find the supposed killer who confesses to the serial murders that happen yearly along Route 66. The prologue of the book grabs you and the book does not disappoint.
All of the characters are believable, the story plausible, the tension high. This is a winner of a thriller, up there with the best.
Shirley D. (Amherst, MA) (12/22/12)

Rage Against the Dying
The novel is very well crafted and is graced with some ideas that encourage deeper thought. However, it is not by any means a "thriller" and the characters never become real. They are cardboard cutouts caused partially perhaps by the use of a nickname for each. With the use then of the proper name, the flow of concentration is interrupted, confusion results and the character remains just a character. While it is interesting to see what happens to each, it really doesn't matter. There is very little connection between the reader and the character.
