This is one critics review of "Vancouver Secrets".
“A noble reason for writing (i.e., the author’s desire to end violence against women) provides a strong foundation for Vancouver Secrets. Thematically, this thread works well in the novel in terms of protagonist creation and plotting. There’s also lots of high-octane energy in the prose, especially with chapters like 21 where the scenes of discovery deepen the character development. The author’s insight into law enforcement techniques reads as if he was one of them. There are a lot of characters, but the author is good with descriptions. How many of them think is evident and the romance between two main female characters is handled eloquently. Why ‘bad guys’ do what they do is well-rounded.”
