"A great premise, hook, and a terrific central character make for a compelling reading experience in this high-octane, international adventure. I really enjoyed this screenplay... Strong opening scene. Excellent writing. The sharp detail and powerful visuals bring the words on the page to life. Really like how you tied in the teaser to the introduction of our protagonist, Morgan Turner.
