"A smoothly written, intriguing puzzle, one that will keep the reader guessing until Mac's final confrontation with a killer."
L.L. Thrasher, author of Charlie's Bones and Charlie's Web
"Terry's novella, the first in a series of Dr. Theo MacGreggor mysteries, is short and quickso quick, in fact, it's easy to miss flashes of wit displayed by a character who has a first-name relationship with digestive bacteria... Terry likes a good cliffhanger."
