“The Undertaker by William F. Brown has it all — suspense, mystery, action, intrigue, politicians, conspiracy, thrills, and a bit of romance. The reader is quickly drawn in to this book. There are lots of “bad” guys… The plot is full of surprises… once I started reading I couldn’t stop. This is not a book I want to read alone late at night.”
Anne Boling for ReadersFavorite.com
“The story line was the first thing to grab me… William Brown did an excellent job in pulling me in and keeping my attention throughout the book. There wasn’t a rest in the plot and more importantly, no down times. It was constant action and suspense.”
Melissa, The Sunday Book Review – Good Reads
“Don’t miss reading this book…it has a little bit of everything… frightening scenes, clever twists and turns, love, and humor. I found myself laughing out loud, crying, and also being afraid for the characters.”
