FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS
"This crime fiction adventure is both heartwarming and inspiring."
"The endearing amateur sleuth, an impressively intricate plotline, and the laugh-out-loud humor in places (what action hero worries about their enlarged prostate?) easily make up for some sequences that stretch the bounds of believability. Also of note is the subtle social commentary."But the real power here is in the relatability of Blaze; we’re all searching for purpose and fulfillment in our lives, and this crime fiction adventure is both heartwarming and inspiring."An action-packed and surprisingly poignant yarn about a man’s search for himself as he enters his golden years."
