Reviews

Touch Your Nose is a seductive potboiler that pulls you in and leaves your head spinning. LeDrew’s prose elevates this tale of corporate espionage beyond the usual pulp fiction fare, subverting cliches, tropes, and expectations. It’s sexy, clever, and fun with a final twist that will hit readers harder than a right hook from Daniel Craig”
– Brad Dunne, author of After Dark Vapors

“Spy Tale meets Corporate Espionage meets Romance meets What the Heck Did I Just Read?” — Ali House, author of The Six Elemental

“A fascinating dive into an area of the Engen Universe that was sorely in need of expansion.” — Sam Bauer, author of Dark Peaks
