Scott Free (2003)
John Gilstrap
"If ever there was a one-sitting read, SCOTT FREE is it. Author Gilstrap has done it again: Not only has he dished up a gut-grabbing, pure-adrenaline rush of a thriller, but he's snagged our hearts too with a gripping story of a father-son relationship that's every bit as compelling as the breathtaking scenes and the wry, perceptive observations about small-town life."

Mission Canyon (2003)
(Evan Delaney, book 2)
Meg Gardiner
"It seems that the most enjoyable thrillers bring together the past and the present in unexpected yet suspenseful ways. So it is with Mission Canyon, Meg Gardiner's latest book featuring Evan Delaney, a witty, resourceful young woman fast with the bon mots and with a never-say-die attitude about... well, about everything! Echoes of a horrible auto accident in the past, involving Delaney's fiance, keep coinciding with a harrowing (and all-too-timely) story of corporate greed and evil-doing in quirky Southern California. It's up to Delaney to deal with this risky business and sort out the good from the bad, which she does with characteristic pluck and wit. The personal issues Gardiner raises about the physical and emotional consequences of severe injury are among the best parts of the story."
