Praise for The CEO Came DOA
“I found the strongest part of the novel Lee Alvarez herself: strong, competent, and witty, in a growing tradition of tough female detectives. The novel is set in the heart of Silicon Valley and brings in a lot of the local color of that region… All in all, this is a strong work in the genre of the mystery/thriller.”
