About Places Blue:

George Hartmann is at a breaking point. His three little boys have suffered one harrowing ordeal after another and now his wife’s life hangs in the balance.

It’s all because of a threat which dates back thousands of years to a dramatic past life in Ancient Greece. Murderous villains from that far-flung past are here in the present and bent on destroying everything George holds dear.

The danger is real. There’s little to go on besides a string of distant, pieced-together memories. And there’s no place to hide.

Perfect for fans who enjoy both suspense and sentimentality, Places Blue is the third book in the George Hartmann twisty psychological thriller series.

Non-stop from the first word to the last. I couldn’t put this down, non-stop, just when you think things are going to chill for a minute nope, it takes off again. Wonderful read, can’t wait for the next book.

These books just keep getting better and better. This book is incredibly engrossing, so much that I read way into the night to finish! I could not put it down, This is an awesome series and I am looking forward to the next book.

Do you like Intensity? I do! The intensity in this book was unbelievable. It was a fascinating, gripping and compelling read. George and his extended family are up to their eyeballs in issues and problems. Nothing is quite what it seems. There is an ebb and flow to the story that just keeps you wanting more.

This is the third book in the series and it packs a powerful punch. It’s a highly episodic story that churns through the pages. I couldn’t believe I finished it so quickly. There was no place and no way to stop reading once you started. I don’t want to give anything away but the book has all the elements-a great hook, compelling characters, lots of sex, family, action, suspense, in fact it would be perfect for television.

George has to grow, evolve and reflect. It’s a journey for him. Overall, this book moves the series along nicely and sets up book four. Don’t miss it!
