Praise for Murder on the Rocks
'Immediately, I felt that I had been sucked into a well thought out Agatha Christie novel, it felt quite ‘Then There Were None’ Who dun it with a noir private investigator twist. I enjoyed the classic feel of the narrative and penmanship.' - The Reading Closet.
'The great thing about Jordan Jenner is that he is a diverse character; however, the fact that he is a member of an underrepresented group is not what defines him. Jordan Jenner is defined by the fact that he is talented detective and a natural sleuth.' - Beckie Writes.
'If you find cozies are too “soft” for you or too old fashioned give Murder on the Rocks a shot. The more modern twist on the genre was a refreshing read – I am interested to see how the series evolves further.’ - The Itinerarian.
Praise for the Jordan Jenner Mysteries
'If you love a flair of drama in your mystery novel this one is for you. Forget about missing wills and hushed affairs. Murder on the Rocks is all about sex, jealousy, and pride.'
'Strange was clearly channelling his inner Agatha Christie when writing this, no doubt about it. Jordan holds himself like a modern-day Hercule Poirot, but without referring to his little grey cells every two sentences.'
'The multiple layers, red herrings and motives here make for a satisfying plot.'
'A compelling crime mystery.'
