The following statements were included in the
publisher's "Fiction Manuscript Editorial Evaluation"


The Ebony Coffin was an incredibly fun, fast-paced, attention-grabbing read. Readers will enjoy traipsing through England and Scotland in the opulent and exciting world that Jim Kirkwood and his cohorts inhabit, as well as the intriguing ideas the author presents regarding Christian mythology and history.

Readers who like mystery and adventure will love visiting Jim Kirkwood's spectacular world of international intrigue. The basic premise is gripping and unique, and the author promptly sets the tone and focus. The author's intimate knowledge of Scottish history and the religious element add depth and resonance to the story-mixed in with the fun of Jim Kirkwood's slightly flawed but always exciting character. The story is very well executed, and the author uses language skillfully.

The current resurgence in alternative Christianity makes this book particularly timely.

First person narration from Jim's point of view is an excellent choice for this book, allowing the reader to experience the adventure through Jim's posh-yet-devious character, which is a central element of the story's charm.

The storyline is tightly plotted and moves at a good pace; scenes and action sequences fit neatly together to move the action forward. There are many conflicts between characters throughout and many events, both large and small, that propel the plot and provide background information as needed. The plot certainly holds the reader's attention.

The Ebony Coffin includes an assorted cast of thugs, thieves, religious icons, and brilliant scholars. The characters are all wonderfully vibrant. Each has his or her own distinct personality, made evident by their actions and appearances, and Jim Kirkwood is a truly fun character to go on an adventure with.
