What people are saying about Flynt & Steele:––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Reader can’t put down the Flynt & Steele series!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Flynt is one of my favorite new characters to show up in fiction. I love the things he blurts out. Even he thinks they are inappropriate, but they are also usually true. This guy will likely do for folks on the autism spectrum what Monk did for OCD” – Scott Ellis. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It is a great human study on each person’s strengths and weaknesses. I was cheering for them both by the end of the book” – Julie Rowe⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A well written and good police procedural written by these two authors. In this sometimes humorous, most times thought provoking novel, it proves the oft misleading thoughts people have of one another. I highly recommend this book to anyone willing to ride the new roller coaster of this new series of these two great detectives: Flynt and Steele” – (Rachelle) Rae Long
