From the Publisher’s Weekly starred review of The Last Iota (sequel to The Big Sheep): Kroese gifts readers with his gripping second mystery set in 2039 Los Angeles (after 2016’s The Big Sheep), another sophisticated blend of science fiction and crime.

My scifi noir novel The Big Sheep isn’t even available yet in stores, and I’m giving you a chance to win one absolutely free.
