REVIEWS

Praise for Rust On The Razor

"Zubro's greatest gift to the reader is the fluidity of pace and his flawless structure which never loses balance. He also sprinkles the ride with lots of wit and self-deprecating camp humor...Rust on the Razor delivers a truly enjoyable read." --Lambda Book Report

"As in Zubro's previous books, readers have both campy humor and an action-filled plot to keep them entertained. Highly recommended-this one's a good read in every sense of the term." --Booklist on An Echo of Death

"A breathless, headlong hurtle though a complex maze of danger and deceit. Like a master magician, the author never allows the reader an instant for reflection, providing instead constant and entertaining diversions. A stellar accomplishment." --The Clarion-Ledger on An Echo of Death

"Besides creating captivating police work and strong storytelling elements, Zubro possesses an ability to write about the details like few authors I've encountered. Another Dead Teenager is a fine way to spend a night inside with a good book." --Lavender Lifestyles

"Zubro has written another fast-paced mystery, complete with well-rounded, likeable characters and an interesting plot. His writing is so crisp that The Only Good Priest is this month's pick." --Windy City Times
