—Rich Everitt, author of “Fallen Stars: Air Crashes That Killed Rock and Roll Heaven,” and president of Medialine and Talentapes.

"Every part is refined and authentic and the energy of Stone Grissom’s storytelling is its triumph. Add that to a tense, twist-filled plot, skillful pacing, colorful and well-developed characters, with just a touch of blackmail, and Grissom is poised to be well on his way to rival the giants in the genre."

—Andreas Kyprianou, former national marketing director, Metro Goldwyn Mayer, and professional script doctor.
