I think Stephen Bly is a great author. Unfortunately these books aren't available in my language yet, so I have to keep reading him in English. Comparing to anyone else? Zane Grey - but from another viewpoint. Being the first book in the "Austin-Stoner FILES" this book has good plot, a good story, powerful for your imagination - and not only that, but it even has a surprising end to it. My advice to those that bought it: Keep on reading it: You'll enjoy it. And to those who hasn't: Buy it! You won't be disappointed!
