The Second Law

“Unremitting suspense throughout… Spirited characters, both good and bad, populate this engaging, often surprising thriller.”

Kirkus Review
L.A. Starks - Strike Price

Strike Price

“Toss in a charming and nervy protagonist like Lynn Dayton and L. A. Starks’ STRIKE PRICE is right on the money. Well-written, well-plotted and well worth a reader’s time…”

Carlton Stowers, two-time Edgar winner
L.A. Starks - 13 Days: The Pythagoras Conspiracy

13 Days: The Pythagoras Conspiracy

5 Stars. “I found the book not only entertaining but educational. L. A. Starks made sure the reader understood all the oil refinery terminology… I enjoyed the entire story and liked the tenacity of the main character Lynn! I look forward to reading more books in the future by L. A. Starks.”

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. “Second Law kept me on pins and needles! Oh, my gosh, was it good. Every time I thought things would calm, things exploded again. This is most definitely a keeper to be read again and again.”

Rebecca, Goodreads and Amazon reviewer

“STRIKE PRICE takes the reader from Oklahoma Indian reservations to the streets of Florence, in an imaginative and well informed fusion of oil refining economics, Native American politics, and the potential for lethal mayhem in the global energy market.”

Michael Ennis, author of New York Times best seller, The Malice of Fortune
