"The plot is complex. You must pay attention. You will reap a lot of enjoyment if you do. This is a great story... I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Most readers will jump on the thrill train and get the ride of their lives. In this genre, who could ask for anything more?"

"A Decent Bomber is a thrilling action-packed novel that chills readers to their core. With torture descriptions and draped heavily in death, this novel is not for the unseasoned reader."

The Coffee Pot Review

"This is a most intriguing book, it calls to question a variety of things that I had never really considered before... The storyline is tight, fast and will keep you gripped. It is intelligent, there is no simple “terrorism is bad” message."
