The first review of THE DEVIL'S BAIT that I've seen has been posted, by regular reader and commenter of this blog, Randy Johnson (who points out that he is not the baseball pitcher Randy Johnson, but a different one). I suspect this Randy Johnson reads more books than the pitcher does, as he often writes about some new literary discovery, or old rediscovery. Either way, he's always got something interesting going on over there for those of us who love genre fiction.
Randy describes the story, and wraps things up this way: "Nice, tight thriller, with several twists thrown in along the way. One perhaps I should have figured, though Mariotte disguised it nicely as the story flows along. I was surprised and pleased with this one. Well worth the modest price asked on Amazon."
I couldn't have asked for a better one to start with.
