El Ojo del Lago sang R.J. McMillen’s praises in their review of her debut mystery Dark Moon Walking:

Part of McMillen’s genius is her ability to write in a way that resonates for both the novice and the aficionado.  You don’t have to be a mystery buff to appreciate this tale, but fans of the whodunit genre will find it more than satisfying.  You don’t have to be a seaman to appreciate it, either, but sailors and fishermen will read in McMillen’s descriptions of life on the water the unmistakable ring of authenticity. This is a book that will make new fans for the mystery genre, and seduce city slickers and landlubbers alike with its call of the wild.”

The Corpse with the Emerald Thumb by Cathy Ace is the perfect read for those who like a classic mystery with twists and turns, enjoyable characters and no gory descriptions.” —Brookeblogs
