REVIEWS

For CORRUPTION OF FAITH

“A mystery that provides more than a whodunit. A glimpse at the underbelly of human motivation and the lengths some people will go to achieve their nefarious desires. Solid, at times humorous, often touching.”

Rendezvous

“This reviewer looks forward eagerly to English’s next effort.”

Affaire deCoeur

“An extraordinarily good debut … English does an excellent job of bringing the sister’s character to life, even though she never appears in the book, as well as creating a well-rounded and interesting sleuth in Sutton. I’ll certainly look forward to the next.”

MLB News

“A well-written, interesting who-done-it, starring a bright new amateur sleuth in her debut novel. Fans of female amateur sleuths will be looking forward to Brenda English’ next entry in what appears to be a promising series.”

Midwest Book Review

“Assured writing and deft characterization combine in a debut for fans of writers of strong yet compassionate self-aware women … you grow really fond of Sutton and her sensible yet sensitive attitude.”

Poisoned Pen

For CORRUPTION OF POWER

“A good build-up to this story, and it is is filled with plenty of suspense. The interaction between police and reporters is excellent. Well done.”

Rendezvous

“The Sutton McPhee mysteries are among the best because they have intricate puzzles to be solved by the reader. CORRUPTION OF FAITH is one of English’s premium tales because the dark side of the DC political atmosphere is brilliantly described. The protagonist adds much to the story, leading to readers wanting to buy this novel and previous entries in the series.”

Midwest Book Review

“First class plotting, snappy dialogue and detailed plotting.”

Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

For CORRUPTION OF JUSTICE

“An extremely well-done amateur sleuth mystery … Sutton remains a well-balanced individual who can be sensitive or hard as necessary. Readers will adore the intrepid journalist and relish the fact that her personal life has moved forward.”
