Sally Steele5 Stars Out Of 5May 6, 2010Sally SteeleAfter reading Farraday Road I could hardly wait to getmy hands on Swope's Ridge. Ace Collins sure knows how to hook an audience and write a great mystery. Ihope that these two are the start of many books to come. My friends at church enjoyed them also.
breezie5 Stars Out Of 5May 4, 2010breezieOutstanding book and follow-up to Farraday Road. I could not put this book. Excellent writing and plot development. Even though I figured who the "leak" could be, I sometimes doubted with all the twists and turns that this book takes. Every wall in my apartment would be filled with this story board. I am anxiously looking forward to a third book and I want to find out more about Curtis, Jamie, Heather, and Lije. Don't keep us waiting Mr. Collins.
