Reviews for “The Devil Inside”

“A wild ride into the thicket of political issues and psychological thrills. Boyd juggles his over-the-top plot with energy, glee, and ease. A highly satisfying roller-coaster-read of a book.” Q Syndicate Book Marks

“Boyd carves out his characters like a sculptor. An excellent mystery from a terrific writer.”

“A taut thriller, loaded with fantastic twists, turns, and a cast of characters you won’t soon forget. A page turner that will keep you guessing right to the end.” The Texas Triangle

“A riveting, Hollywood-style thriller. The most refreshing part? For a change, the two heroes aren’t white. Kordell is an African-American with AIDS, and Mario is, of course, Latino. A third major character is Japanese. Quite a nifty twist to your routine gay male adventure novel, making this a must summer read.” The Letter (Louisville, KY)

“A psychotic little pulp novel about Kordell Christie, a square gay businessman who becomes part of a mystery that involves mind control, a bad man named Pizarro, and a place called the Facility where there are drug-enhanced masturbation machines.” Unzipped Magazine
