"Dead of Spring is a highly readable book which captures the reader's interest immediately and swiftly carries him or her through a story which is always captivating and full of suspense.  In this suspenseful tale of corruption and criminal greed, Alexa Williams proves once again that she’s a formidable heroine. The ins and outs of the book will keep will keep you glued to your seat.  It is a valuable book, which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and wishes to learn about an important neglected subject in American fiction."

Mark Leggatt on DEAD OF SPRING

Best-selling Author of International Thriller 'Names of the Dead'

"Knowlton weaves a compelling tale, and the threads become tighter as the plot progresses. A suspicious suicide of a powerful politician takes on new meaning when Alexa Williams’s investigations uncover corruption at the heart of the fracking industry.  And when she becomes the target, the tension ramps up to a thrilling climax. Highly recommended."

Kay Kendall on DEAD OF SPRING

Award-winning author of historical mysteries

"DEAD OF SPRING combines legislative corruption with corporate greed that ends in deadly violence. Heroine Alexa Williams resists intimidation to battle evil at the highest levels of Pennsylvania government and commerce. Spurring her on is a love for the environment and for a friend whose daughter's cancer is caused by fracking. Here is a spellbinding yarn jerked straight from today's frightening headlines."
