My First Book Review
I got my first review on Amazon.com. Had to share it with my readers.
5 out of 5 stars.

Lately Dreamspinner Press has been publishing some really first-rate novels and such is the case with Wolf Phoenix’s “Irreversible Error”. Erik Steppenwolf is a cop who finds himself in the middle of Houston’s drag scene where hustlers are also found. He got there because he was asked by an old friend to investigate her son’s death. He manages to get Lola, a flamboyant drag queen to help him and she introduces him to the hustlers who may know something about the murderer. As Erik sits at one of Lola’s shows, he meets a dancer, Red, and the two are immediately attracted to each other and as they start an affair, the murder puzzle begins to come to light and hints and clues that will lead to a murder conviction are exposed but there is still the idea that everything has not been uncovered. Things between Erik and Red begin to sour and they go their separate ways and Erik decides that his foray in Houston is over and he thinks about moving on. However he still wants to find the truth and is not sure that he is over Red.
Phoenix gives us quite a look at Houston and the characters that dwell in the seedy underworld of drag queens and hustlers. He has created several interesting characters and Erik and Lola, along with others, are wonderfully drawn. I do not want to disclose any more about the plot because to do so would spoil the read. Take my advice, you will keep reading this until you close the covers and then want to start it all over again.
[NOTE: The book can be purchased from Dreamspinner Press and Amazon.com in several formats: paperback and digital versions that can be downloaded to your PC, phone, PDA, or Kindle gizmo.]
