"I have had the privilege of reading all of Mr. Howard’s books and I think this is now my new favorite. The book will definitively hold your attention. As a former teacher of the Deaf, I particularly liked Matt and Simone’s characters. The whole idea of psychometry was very fascinating. I loved the author’s note: We do need to focus on what we have in common and try to understand each person’s exceptionality. Please take the time to read this novel. You will not be disappointed!"
"Loved the book. The beginning grabbed me and I didn't want to put it down. For me to love a book , I have to care about the characters. Loved all the characters. What I found surprising about the book is it gave me insight into the world of deafness. Keep it up Lyle! Can't wait to read your next book." Margaret Williams
"I believe this has been the best book I have read this year. I enjoyed the storyline
immensely. The twist at the end was amazing and in no way predictable. Super good mystery with a fantastic ending. Will definitely be reading more by this author. Thanks for the great read." Jerry D. Lippold
"This has to be one of the most unique novels I have ever read. Where else can you read about government conspiracies and serial killers all in one book? Mr. Sandman of course.
This is a fast paced novel that spans almost 30 years and interjects two historical backdrops for setting. The first is the backdrop is the crash of Florida Air flight 90 that crashed into the icy Potomac River in 1982. The other is the infamous Hurricane Andrew which devastated south Florida in 1992.
This story revolves around a government experiment in which no survivors were intended. But when Lance Cutter and his mother survive, they go on the run.
The premise for this novel is unique and reminds of a good police procedural mixed with a Marvel Comics superhero atmosphere of which good and evil collide for supremacy. I have never quite read a novel like this before, but I thoroughly enjoyed it more than many of the books I have read in the recent past."
"Really enjoyed this story. It wasn't very technical, which is my preference. It moved along quickly, and kept me looking forward to what was around the next bend. There were even some nice surprises which caught me off guard. I'm glad I found this book, and I'm going to read more by this author. I hope there are more time travel stories, too." Jaime Campos
"Author Lyle Howard weaves a fascinating paranormal crime thriller with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints a creative and exciting supernatural tale in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a relatively fast-paced novel that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last.
'A Trace of Revenge' had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.
I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book's mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. A first-class thriller with perfect pacing. Not much is as it appears here, which is just the way fans of mystery, thriller and suspense will want it.
It’s one of those stories that comes along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!
I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Lyle Howard the future. I would definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me." Piaras
