Some great reviews of DiGenti's work: 

Hurricane Island will blow you away. With a murder, a double kidnapping, rising winds, and a pocketful of alligator teeth, this is a perfect storm of a mystery.” –      Michael Wiley, Shamus Award-winning author of Blue Avenue

“Parker Francis’ new thriller starts with a gust and steadily increases to hurricane speeds. You’ll want to lash yourself to a palm tree and hang on for dear life.”—Lisa Black, New York Times bestselling author

Hurricane Island: It’s twenty-four stormy hours … and one living hell of a good time.” – Jefferson Bass, New York Times bestselling author

And We Were Amateur Soldiers doesn’t have any blurbs, but here are a few of the Amazon reader comments:

“Unique and absorbing account of one man’s journey in the Rainbow Division of WWII."

"Story is loaded with interesting and honest personal experiences. War is truly hell! Olsen’s success is more than luck."
