"Linaburg delivers an impressive novel with a beautifully layered storyline that slowly and cohesively brings together wildly different aspects of the character's life. This is a confidently told story that deftly confronts difficult realities with a feeling of authenticity. A finely tuned and realistic novel about making peace with the past." Kirkus Reviews

"Poignant and visceral, A Study in Terminal takes the reader on a deep dive into the heart of death, what it means, and how we each may become uniquely acquainted with it. With care and precision, Linaburg has crafted a story that will arrest your attention from its beginning all the way through to its soaring conclusion." Brian McBride, Author of Mammoth

"At its core, A Study in Terminal explores the theme of death and all the associated traumas that come with one that is both unexpected and violent. However, it doesn't neglect to shine a light on the other side of the coin and eventually also touches on ideas of self-love, acceptance, and the power that comes from forgiveness. It manages to pack a lot of layers into its pages without creating confusion or slowing down the action. As a result, Linaburg has created a tightly wound and efficient story where even the most minor characters play an important role to the plot progression and have an impactful place in Sean's life." Literary Titan

"The complex issues of life, love, alienation, guilt and ultimately death intertwine in this compelling novel. The characters are unusual and fascinating while the action is riveting. A Study in Terminal is filled with profound insights into the human condition. While exploring the depths of despair, it provides hope for reconciliation. It is an outstanding novel and highly recommended." Reader's Favorite - 5 Star Review

"Linaburg weaves a story of redemption, healing, sacrifice, and what "terminal" means. She infuses hope into desperate situations, forgiveness and healing into torrid circumstances and memorable characters that will stay with you long after you set the book down. Readers of gritty contemporary, suspense, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fans alike will find something to appreciate in this book."
