Amazon review

AWESOME! Must read! This is book five of the Creed series and I am enormously grateful to the author for her ‘authors note’ at the end that assures her readers that there are many more Creed stories to come!

Amazon review

ALEX KAVA NEVER DISAPPOINTS! This book pretty much tops them all for sheer excitement and suspense. I love the Ryder Creed character and here we get a twofer with the limited appearance of FBI agent Maggie O'Dell.


Amazon Reader

From page 1, Kava grabbed my attention and sucked me in like a tornado. My absolute favorite part was reading this: "coming soon is HIDDEN CREED"… because I'm sad that the book is over every time I finish a Alex Kava book.
