News and Reviews...
“A twisty tale of a parent’s worst nightmare, Rose’s Thorn reminds us of the cost of our past actions and that small towns aren’t as safe as they seem.”
– Liz Milliron, author of The Laurel Highland Mysteries
“A detective still reeling from the after-effects of capturing a serial killer finds himself on the trail of a new criminal, and only by uncovering a dark secret can he stop the murders. This is a fast-paced, terrific debut novel by Lynn-Steven Johanson.”
— Peter W. J. Hayes, author of the Detective Vic Lenoski series.
