Praise for Ron’s Books
"PAYBACK is timely, poignant and terrifying, every writer’s nightmare, or fantasy."
—Robert Dugoni, #1 international bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite novels
"PAYBACK is an excellent whodunit murder mystery made colorful by its island setting and its publishing industry insider cast."
—Foreword Reviews Magazine
"A deftly plotted, highly entertaining island murder mystery, page-turning PAYBACK breaks new ground in the political and legal thriller genre."
—Best Thriller Magazine
"Fans of Agatha Christie’s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE may appreciate PAYBACK's suspenseful homage."
—Publishers Weekly Best Books
"THE AMENDMENT KILLER might well serve as a primer for the commercial legal thriller. The concept is high, the pacing supersonic, the characters well-drawn and sympathetic. The novel should come with a warning: addictive reading ahead. It’s as good a legal thriller as I’ve read this year."
—John Lescroart, author of a dozen New York Times bestselling novels
"THE PUPPET MASTER moves through D.C. Politics with the wicked swiftness of an assassin’s bullet, lean, mean, and razor sharp."
—Barry Lancet, award-winning author of Japantown and The Spy Across The Table
"[THE PUPPET MASTER is] one of the year’s best thrillers!"
—Best Thriller Magazine
