book reviews

Captivating. Brilliantly written. The imagery will make you feel like you are in Santa Barbara.

For his first time at bat (as an Author), he knocked it out of the park! I loved this story that Dean Ferraro brought to life. Obviously the Author used his past experiences to create a story that helps the reader navigate through the complex halls of our legal system. Mr. Ferraro used suspense, humor and his EXTENSIVE knowledge of 80's music in an entertaining and captivating way. I was never bored. His description of his characters made this reader feel like he knew them on a personal level. [L]ooking forward to Josh's next big adventure. BUY THIS BOOK!!

Great debut mystery novel. Numerous twists and turns that kept me engaged the entire read!
