Booklist Review: "Cyprus Keller is not a man to mince words. By the end of the marathon he is about to run as this beguiling mystery begins, he will have served justice by committing murder. Broken into 26 chapters (plus epilogue) to mirror the 26.2 miles of a marathon, the tale follows the race, but first-person narrator Keller provides the backstory as he runs, unveiling the events that lead to him hunting down his quarry over the course of a marathon. Gradually, we learn how ex-cop and now professor of criminology Keller wound up in the middle of a murder investigation after the death of one of his students. Using his old cop skills to dig into the circumstances surrounding the student's death, he soon discovers that the student was conducting an investigation of her own, an effort that may have led to her death. The deeper Keller delves into the case, the more the body count grows. Hensley, a distance runner himself, artfully combines details of running a marathon with an engaging mystery possessing just the right amount of red herrings.--Gaus, Eve Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The Pittsburgh Marathon serves as the backdrop for this impressive first novel from former police officer and Secret Service agent Hensley. Dr. Cyprus Keller, a former cop turned criminology professor at Three Rivers University, dodges a bullet by rejecting the advances of beautiful co-ed Lindsay Behram, in an embarrassing scene in his office witnessed by Steven Thacker, Keller's "chronically miserable, and completely obnoxious, graduate assistant." When Lindsay turns up strangled shortly afterward, Keller finds himself drawn into a situation that threatens his professional standing and provokes Steven to physically assault him. Meanwhile, Keller, an amateur marathoner, trains for the race with three colleagues, and then during the race resolves to take the law into his own hands. This artfully constructed mystery makes effective use of the third-rate-college setting and of Pittsburgh, as revealed by the course of the marathon, marked by each of the 26 chapters plus a brief final one headed ".2."
