The narrative flows together as smoothly as if it were written by a single author. Both Counios and Gane (who are in-laws and friends) come from a screenwriting background and you can see it in the fast paced short scenes which frequently end on a cliffhanger.

SaskBook Reviews
Significantly longer than the typical YA "detective" story, Shepherd's Watch is, nevertheless, a most engaging read. Fans of the series will eagerly await the next installment.
