“This heart­pounding thriller will string you along and bring you right to the edge before reaching a most satisfactory conclusion. If this were a movie, it’s the type that would have me walking out
of the theater only able to say, ‘Wow!’ I look forward to reading more from Mr. Weissbourd.”

“Wrote in multiple perspectives involving complex characters and subplots, In Velvet reminds me of Stephen King’s writing because of the gory details and complexity within the characters. I think that the author did a fantastic job at giving each character their own voice.”

“This book had a lot of interesting characters. I also enjoyed the setting – watching these folks traipse around in small towns, rural areas, and out and out wilderness. Some were equipped for it, others were not. Rachel’s character was probably the most interesting for me as she is a biologist (same as me) and I instantly related to her.”

“A Fast­paced, character driven novel that could actually happen, green and corruption abounds amongst some of the characters. A great thriller for the person who enjoys a story who’s characters are tough and gritty, no sugar coated people in this book! I enjoyed it immensely!”

“ IN VELVET hits the ground running and doesn’t stop until the last page. Each chapter has sections focusing on different characters and their actions moving the story and events at a rapid pace. Once started it’s best to strap on your seatbelt and make sure you have time to enjoy this astute high octane ride. IN VELVET left me breathless, a bit contemplative, and completely satisfied. Beneath the action packed thrill ride IN VELVET was about the consequences of actions, decisions, and the manipulation and exploitation of Nature for all the wrong reasons. Nature has a way of getting her own back. Secondly it’s about forgiveness because without it there’s no moving on or growth. And last but not least, second chances, because most, though not all, people are worth a second chance.“
