    Book Reviews:

    I have just finished reading Photo Finish and I absolutely fell in love with the strong, well-defined, very humanly portrayed characters. I found myself relating to the places mentioned in the book as I currently live on Oahu. I found myself laughing, being disturbed, mystified, and having “ah-ha” moments as the mystery unraveled. The suspense and action kept you motivated to know what was coming on the next page.” K. Meador, Amazon

License to Lie by Terry Ambrose

  1. 41QvKmuO3qL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-65,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_[1]

    Never trust a soul—even your own. Two experts in the art of communications. Both are driven by their goals—and they’re on opposite sides of the law. But, when her father is kidnapped, they join forces—and learn that with $5,000,000 and their lives on the line, it’s hard to trust each other—or themselves.

    Book Reviews: “License to Lie, set in San Diego, puts some nice new pavement down on the road to structuring the ultimate mystery novel. Author Terry Ambrose pits a PI and a scam artist against both each other and a crew of kidnappers. The author cranks up a festival of back and forth action, telling investigator Skip Cosgrove’s story in third person and alternating chapters with Roxy, the scam artist, speaking for herself in first person.

    A detail oriented writer, Ambrose also crafts an intricate series of plot turns and reversals, employing well realized dramatic action in a realist’s world, where human nature runs not in the red or the black, but, rather, in the gray, and where information technology is key to doing anything well, especially crime and criminal investigation.

    Parallel lines of action and the author’s knowledge of technology are especially well realized in two scenes where the investigator, Skip Cosgrove, cracks a computer while scam artist Roxy Tanner cracks a hard disk. Containing both humor and terror, License to Lie brings the reader along in quick time and I missed Roxy and Skip by the time it was all over–but by that time, not to give the story away completely, they had found each other.” By Clark Lohr

    “License to Lie is fast and well written, almost sure to satisfy discerning readers of thrillers.  There’s a verve to Ambrose’s language and the story moves with assurance, defying easy predictions.  Bravo to this writer.  I hope there’s more to come.” — T. Jefferson Parker, Author of The Jaguar and The Border Lords

    “Fast-paced, unpredictable, and a lot of fun–no one is who they seem in this smart and twisty tale of high finance and double dealing. This unlikely and irresistible crime-fighting duo will charm you–and keep you happily turning the pages.” — Hank Phillippi Ryan, Anthony, Agatha and Macavity award-
