“One of the great feelings that come over me when I settle into a new Honor Series novel by Robert Macomber is the sense that I’m in such capable and caring hands.

Reader, you are in good hands with this writer.”

And Macomber is always good for esoterica, handily filling in background details …”

“Robert Macomber’s 12th book in the ‘Honor’ series will gratify loyal fans and delight new readers… his fans, called ‘Wakians’ drool for the newest morsel… it is truly a Florida book to which residents can relate… Another plus to Macomber’s books is his use of hand-drawn maps and endnotes. The maps are drawn by the author with the intent to make them seem like Wake drew them. The endnotes are explanations of subject matter that might be of interest to the reader, but does not need inclusion in the written text ….”
