Praise for Deadly Focus
Vega & Middleton Debut Novel-Book #1
Finalist in the Fiction: Thriller/Adventure category of the 2018 International Book Awards
“Hinkin, a former TV news photographer, skillfully portrays irredeemable characters as well as likable but flawed ones in this first installment of the Vega and Middleton Mystery series. There’s a healthy mix of ethnicities, ages, and religions (at the news station’s holiday party, the executive playing Santa alternates his red cap with a blue yarmulke). Descriptions are vivid; a line of taillights becomes “a blood red trail creeping east.” An exciting series opener that delivers murder, drugs, and romance.”
4 out of 4 stars
"Deadly Focus: A Vega and Middleton Mystery by Sue Hinkin is a compelling, fast-paced thriller that takes readers on a treacherous journey in search of truth and justice. It is the first book in its intended series and the author’s debut novel…One of my favorite aspects of the narrative is the strong, smart female protagonist. Right from the first chapter, the narrative had me in its grips as I was fascinated by the plot and wondered what would happen next."
“I was bowled over! It's fantastic!!! Gripping. Gritty. Instant and vivid characterizations. Suspenseful. Surprising twists! Holy cow!”
