Specific to My Lethal Shadow:

"I thoroughly enjoyed your novella. It was well presented. It kept me completely interested and I was not able to put it down. All the different scenarios and how everything came together at the end. It was great! The thrill of your novella reminds me of some of my famous writers like Clive Cussler, James Patterson just to name a few."
