Praise For The 3rd Option

“This is the kind of rare thriller that I love--one that grabs you on page one and won't let you go until the satisfying conclusion. 'The 3rd Option' is smart and fresh, combining timely issues with thoughtful insights, relatable characters, and shocking twists. It makes you think while it makes your heart race. Bravo, Ben Sharpton...more please!”
