When Darkness Reigns Review

  • Tony Estrada somehow managed to avoid the bloody gang culture of his neighborhood. Never arrested, at eighteen he enlisted in the Army on a three-year stint. Honorably discharged, he came home. He hadn’t been there a month before his arrest, the night that changed his life forever. A veteran turned prisoner-serving life; Estrada was convicted of murder and plunged into the dark world of the Mexican Mafia, serving time in the meanest prison in California. With no one to trust, Tony was sustained by his faith and a deep, abiding sense of his own innocence. Desperate, Estrada caught the attention of a renegade legal team daring enough to risk themselves in a heroic fight for justice. This a a story of honor defeating corruption, of redemption conquering despair, and truth overwhelming deceit.

“This book grabbed me from the first page, and held my attention for the two days it took me to read it. It’s a fantastic read. Even more important, it is multi-dimensional and touches on areas unusual for a non-fiction book about an infamous homicide in Santa Barbara. Weeks after reading it, I’m still mulling over the lessons it teaches about our criminal justice system, our prisons, and the individuals caught up in them. The people I came to respect and admire in the pages of this book are not ones I’d probably ever become acquainted with, and I’m grateful the author introduced them to me through this work. I am purchasing additional copies of this book to give to several friends and people who should know this story.” By Robin R

“Excellent book. We can all learn something from the faith of Tony Estrada. I envy his faith in Jesus Christ and will hopefully remember his example when I face adversity. Mr Dunn does an exceptional job of presenting the case. It is easy to see why he is such a successful attorney. Once you start reading be ready to be enthralled and hooked until the end.” By D. LeBlanc

Sea of Doubt: The Greatest Story Ever Sold Review

  • After leaving behind a brilliant, but emotionally exhausting career in advertising, Mal Thomas wants nothing more than to enjoy the peace and serenity of the home he and his wife share in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. That serenity is interrupted when, seemingly out of nowhere, Mal gets a call that pulls him back into his old world, and on a path to undertaking an extraordinary assignment: Alfredo Baptiste, the world’s most powerful and mysterious industrialist wants Mal to promote the alleged second coming of the Messiah. As Mal and his team of cynical “Mad” men and women confront their own doubts about the validity of Baptiste’s seemingly ridiculous claim that his adopted son Sebastian is this new Messiah, they can’t resist the challenge, and find themselves thrust into a world of greed and revenge. In a fast moving and often sardonic narrative that crisscrosses New York, North Carolina, Miami, and Buenos Aires, Sea of Doubt has its roots in our endless obsession with fame and pop-culture. As Mal’s team develops an unstoppable global campaign, a worldwide media feeding frenzy ensues, causing people to set aside all logic and reason, leading to tragic consequences. Baptiste’s motivation is ultimately revealed in a twisted and unexpected ending as parallel worlds and a seismic conspiracy explode in an ending that will make you wonder how you didn’t see it coming earlier. Sea of Doubt provides a window into human nature and media driven mass persuasion, forcing us to look at consequences of the choices we make. Ultimately Holden shows us how belief in ourselves is what really matters. You will laugh out loud at the absurdity of the challenges that Mal and his team find themselves confronted with, while at the same time being forced to examine the role we all play in enabling the media to shape our thinking, and dictate our lives.

“I loved this book! When I heard about the plot, I was very intrigued. When I started reading the book, I was captivated. Holden has a special way of telling a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat, always wondering what’s going to happen next. His characters are authentic and believable, thrusting you to examine your own beliefs and questioning the reality of something like this really happening. Thoroughly enjoyed reading every page of Sea of Doubt.” By V. Parker

“Although I admit I don’t read a lot of books I could not stop reading Sea of Doubt until It was done. (2 days) From the first sentence, paragraph and chapter you will be hooked also. I loved how Jeremy put excellent visions of the characters in my head with the way he writes. The excellent story will keep you turning the page after page like it did with me !”By Michelle

“I’m normally a Sandra Brown fan but this is just TOO bad.How a supposedly intelligent young woman could ever find an oafish boor like Reede attractive is beyond me. Alex’s mother had died a scandalous death in this small West Texas town 25 years previously and now she’s back in her role of A.D.A. to reopen the case and discover her mothers murderer.The premise of the story is ok. but when the hero is portrayed as a man 18 years her senior who grabs her hand and places it on his crotch shortly after meeting her, the feeling of the book turns not to romance but to just plain lust and general nastiness.Could any woman find this behaviour appealing?” By Beverley Strong

“I don’t know what bothered me more about this book. It could have been the fact that the lead character “fell” for the same man her mom did, or the fact that she was supposedly this strong woman who ended up looking anything but that as the story went on. I found myself getting more and more frustrated as the story went on for not walking away and throwing the book in the garbage. But, I got to a point where I was too far into it to give it up. This really was a pretty bad book. The characters were so superficial and you didn’t know who to root for. The premise was a good one-Alex trying to find her mother’s murderer, but there was no development to it, and the story could have been so much better than it was.

A bad book, with bad characters and a very stupid plot. I need to find out what is wrong with me that I keep reading books by Sandra Brown. She is just not that good.” By ACDCJen

“This is a very enjoyable read – one of sharp contrasts. In fact I found myself dreading the chapters dealing with the orphanage. Thankfully the author used descriptive but not excessively graphic scenes to portray the horrors of those institutions. And she balanced it with delightful humor in the chapters about Jamie’s adult life. The characters are well drawn; the best of which is Rose McFadden. I laughed out loud at some of her dialogs and learned a great new word…”And it’s a terrible thing when a body is incapissitated in such a way.” That one line was worth the whole book!” By Meg

“Though he was resigned to a life of miserable loneliness, some hope still remained for Jamie McCloone. “The Misremembered Man” is the story of two opposites. One is the rugged Jamie, with his cruel history of orphanhood and a sad life; the other is Lydia, a cleanliness next to godliness type, who lives under an oppressive mother. They meet through the newspaper and an intriguing romance begins to bud, in this touching story of companionship set in rural Ireland’s darker times. A top pick for readers seeking a well-written period piece.” By Midwest Book Review

“I’ve read this book! I found it chilling and fascinating, and the characters are ones you won’t soon forget. I totally identified with the “young” version of the heroine…anyone will who remembers when the Speck murders took place. This is a well written, haunting story and Mary Leo has handled this horrific tale in an amazing way–I think she’s the only one who could have writting this story, this way. Warning: you won’t want to stop reading once you start!” By Janet Wellington

“Leo does a great job of creating a drama filled fictional story with a chilling historical backdrop. Trusting Evil is a page turner. I was repulsed by Richard Speck and could genuinely feel Carly’s pain and guilt. This book is passionate, it is scary and it is romantic, I highly recommend it.” By Veronica M Banghart
