The Devil’s Road to Kathmandu reviewed at The Crime Segments

“There are plenty of unique, crazy and offbeat characters that fill this novel, and the author has a keen eye for detail.  The part of this story that took place in the Blue Parrot is one of my favorites, and is an excellent example of how the author sets a scene that sucks the reader right into the action. Using impressive descriptions, dialogue that’s totally believable and creating such a realistic atmosphere that you feel like you’re actually there along with the boys from the bus drinking it all in, he’s created a world out of this nightclub that I hated to leave. And that’s only one instance … he does the same where ever the action is — in Pakistan, India, and most especially in Kathmandu.  This is definitely not your average crime novel, which is a very good thing. Definitely and most highly recommended.”
