Erika Holzer's "Freedom Bridge" reviews (I)

Brilliant! A plot with more twists than barbed wire. Vivid characters. Life-and-death stakes. A provocative political theme. Erika Holzer delivers everything that a thriller fan could possibly want in this revised edition of her novel Double Crossing”——Robert Bidinotto (Best-selling author of Hunter).

“I just finished reading Erika Holzer's compelling thriller, Freedom Bridge. I could not put it down. I kept saying, ‘One more chapter, one more chapter—no, just one more.’ I cannot remember the last time I read a book in a single sitting. Holzer's ingenious story of man's quest for freedom is full of deviously clever twists and turns, and is told with such detailed clarity that I had the feeling that she personally witnessed the events she describes. Her characters are drawn in such depth that I felt like she had known them since childhood. Her heroes are truly heroic and her villains are authentically despicable. I would love to comment on her tear-inducing ending, but it would be a ‘spoiler,’ so the readers will have to experience it for themselves. They won't be disappointed”——Stanley Gray (Author of teleplay If you give a dance . . . .)

“Once in a very long while, a book comes along that transcends its genre, a book like ‘The Spy That Came In From the Cold.’ Such a book is Erika Holzer's new entry, ‘Freedom Bridge.’ It started out as a reworking of an earlier book, ‘Double Crossing,’ but along the way, it morphed from a Cold War thriller into a blistering historical saga, sizzling with ideas and unforgettable characters and action enough for everyone. Have at it. Pick it up; you won't be able to put it down”——Warren B. Murphy (Two-time “Edgar”winner.)
