If you're looking for a fun read, you've found it! The pace and twists rank right up there with Dan Brown but with better developed characters and a more realistic (but no less exciting!) plot, making this a book that's hard to put down. - MeriC on Amazon This was one of the best books I have read in a long time - the story was original and suspenseful, the characters likeable and interesting, and the romantic aspect of the story was well done. I did not want the story to end. - Jody Jones, Amazon I thoroughly enjoyed this clever story. As the pages unraveled the mystery, they were also building the romance, while at the same time deftly describing the countryside through which the characters travelled, giving the feeling that you are right there along with them. There are some great surprises, the dialogue is smart and funny, and it's fun to root for the relatable characters through the suspense. A fast-paced modern thriller! - Carol L, The Wildwood Independent David Emil Henderson's work is new to me, but I couldn't put "Deadly Dividends" (Escape!) down! The work travelled country that I know, and the references are well researched, so it was a pleasant narrative to begin with, but I felt drawn into the characters, and felt that I knew them. The author has a nice style that doesn't get in the way, while drawing the story in a way that allows the mind to move into it. I'll look forward to another of Mr. Henderson's novels! - denghowun, Amazon (Note: "Deadly Dividends" was a 1st Edition name, changed to "Escape" for later editions.) At times like this, I wish Amazon offered half stars. If they did, this (4-star review) would be a 3.5-star review. The story line was strong enough to keep me reading to the end, but not as compelling as I'd hoped from the description of the book. The heroine is an intriguing character who shows some real growth and development as the story advances, in contrast to the hero who is fairly 2-dimensional throughout and ultimately simply not credible. As the story reached its climax, the author tossed in an interesting twist but he weakened its impact by sending the scene's participants into an endless conversation that stalled the plot's pace. In fact, overall, the unevenness of the plot pace does this book in. The epilogue is too long, too rambling, and ultimately unnecessary. I'm not sorry I gave this new author a try and I'll give him another shot in the future. He clearly has talent and room to grow. - Dan Shafer, Amazon
DAVID EMIL HENDERSON is an award-winning writer, editor, and publisher (and marketing VP) who launched his journalism career in national magazines, then moved over to newspapers in Illinois, Montana, and California, including those owned by Time Inc., Gannett, Media News Group, The Tribune Company, and the New York Times, In his earliest days, his writings found favor with Henry Fonda, Barbra Streisand, Robert Preston, Charlton Heston, and other stars who devoted hours of their personal time to his exclusive interviews for national magazines. Among his other interests, Henderson studied and practiced architectural design for many years, planning and building both residential and commercial projects in Illinois, Montana, Wyoming, and California. He also applied those interests while developing the character of Architect F. Graham Harper in the novel, “Escape!” His first novel, "Montana Midnight," was inspired by his 1970s decade as editor and publisher of a Rocky Mountain newspaper and his experience as a member of the board of directors of a Montana ski resort. Henderson updates can be found occasionally on Google +, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. He may be reached directly via emails: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org

The chase plot continues all the way to the end. A surprising end awaits all the involved parties.
Mike Lambert, Publisher - Wildwood Literary Review, Penn Valley, CA; Aug. 5, 2013
Escape was a real surprise, and a pleasant one. The cover illustration attracts attention but doesn't measure up to the excellent writing inside. I enjoyed an exciting, action-packed, super-fast read about a resourceful architect and a feisty female property manager who run into each other by accident. Finding that they are targeted for another accident - a fatal one - by renegade government agents, they combine forces in more ways than one and escape one near-capture after another from Chicago to Carmel-by-the-Sea. There's enough action, romance, intrigue and suspense for anyone. Escape had another title in an earlier edition but the new title tells the tale more accurately. The author's expressed intent was to produce a good quick read, and he has done it.
