Here's what critics & readers said about Sam's work.

Hawken’s understated but razor sharp prose never gets in the way of the building tension…Powerful stuff.
Camaro Espinoza [is] an intense and capable heroine [with] an ironclad sense of justice. Hawken delivers a potent climax that winds its way through an unremitting firefight to a satisfying conclusion.
