Reviews From Around The World

“…reading about a couple who are like Mr. and Mrs. 007 super smart and always covering all the bases is fantastic.  It makes me feel like everything will be all right.  I just have to cover all the bases.  …the fact that they have been together forever and are still in love is an extra bonus.

I must say that I sincerely hope that you are planning the next book, and the next book and the next book...”

I laughed aloud, actually shed tears over the love story, was scared by the chilling possibility of the plot happening and was on the edge of my seat during the action.

A fantastic blend of color and emotions.

Bodell has outdone himself this time.”

Jill Drummond

Global Media Daily

“Bodell knows where our deepest fears lie buried in regards to the most powerful positions held in the U.S. government.  There is no end to his creative imagination displayed in Nikita.”
