Praise For The Killing: Uncommon Denominator

"Possibly the best part of this book is that you don’t have to be a fan of the show to understand it. It’s a solid story on its own, and even though it’s being marketed as a tie-in to the show’s upcoming fourth season, I’d suggest it as summer reading to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries." - We The Nerdy

"The plot is tight and, without giving anything away, delivers an engaging story set around familiar themes that the viewer will recognize from the TV show." - Cinema Sentries 

"A satisfying page turner, and one that concludes more satisfactory than the season three finale." -Examiner

"A good quick and dirty mystery. It’s got some tension, some suspense, and for any fan of the show, more time with the characters you already invested in and appreciate." - Project Fandom
