  Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

Gustavo Florentin's crime thriller, The Schwarzschild Radius, is an awesome read...I'm hoping that this book is the start of a police procedural series featuring this complex and multi-faceted detective. The action in The Schwarzschild Radius is riveting and filled with suspense, and the ending is not at all predictable. I really enjoyed reading The Schwarzschild Radius and highly recommend it.

Reviewed By Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

Wow, this is a gritty book that really takes a hard look at what can happen in life if you aren't careful...The writing flows well and you find yourself turning every page and wondering what is going to happen next. I could not set this one down and ended up reading it in one day flat. Fair warning: as a thriller this is a dark novel and it is full of themes that some might not like. However, it is well written and if you like the genre you are going to love this book. I highly recommend it.
