Debut mystery author and Native Nebraskan, Kori D. Miller, has created a character some women can relate to, and other women want to be. Ms. Miller’s no-nonsense approach, and flash fiction writing style, keeps each story moving.
What readers are saying:
Hush by Kori D. Miller is a detective novel that feels like a throwback to the good old days of Hollywood film noir – it’s about character and motivation, not explosions and ammo. This story is grounded in rock-solid descriptions of places, food, pool strategy, and martial arts moves. It feels so real, which makes the violent parts all the more frightening. For mystery readers, Hush is a fast, fun, enjoyable read. – Jenni Wiltz, author of The Romanov Legacy
The plot is highly original and upon reading the first chapter, I was immediately captivated. The author masterfully draws you into each scene with highly descriptive setups, and I was able to easily envision the surroundings as though I was there. The pages seemed like they turned themselves. This doesn’t happen often, however, I found myself aggravated when I had to put it down. – V.P. Smith
The characters in HUSH are clearly drawn, complex creatures. The most tantalizing is Dezeray, of course, but even minor characters get the full treatment from author Kori Miller. This reader hopes we will hear lots more from Ms. Miller about Dezeray Jackson in volumes to come. – Marcia Forecki
