“CJ Lyons books are so accurate. I work at a police department and she is right on in her research.” – Debbie Teti, Goodreads

“Absolutely awesome.” – Sherry Gorman, Goodreads

“As former FBI agent, I read a lot of books of this type. This is a very good one. It is very well researched… a compelling story which I had trouble putting down. The characters were real, to the point of reminding me of an agent, who was every bit as dedicated, smart, and fearless as Lucy Guardino. I highly recommend it.” – Mark Lewis, Amazon
