Four Star Review

Four Stars!

Reviewed By Katelyn Hensel for Readers’ Favorite

The Quartz by Vic Warren uncovers a fascinating world of high stakes crime and takes a look into political underworlds and the manipulation that crosses between the honest and dishonest in the People’s Republic of China. Lawrence Kwong is a hardened professional of the streets of Kwun Tong, and has been dealing with mob violence, kidnappings, and the drug trade since before his new partner could walk. This time it’s different, however, and all of his experience may not be enough to get him through the investigation on the most recent case. Vic Warren is bitingly intelligent in this latest novel, and features plots and characters that make you itch for the next book, or at least another book from Warren.  

The character descriptions were great, and once I got a handle on who was who, I really enjoyed the play and interactions that went on between everyone. Vic Warren is a skilled writer, and his simple prose and quick dialogue never let the plot drag or take focus off the characters. I found myself invested in the story after only a few chapters, and at the conclusion I was left wishing there was more. Luckily, Warren is quite prolific so there are many more books out there to explore.

"If one wants to follow a captivating couple pursue their careers in exotic climes brilliantly described,
Stairway of the Gods
is just the right way to do it."
Gordon Osmond at

“The author, Vic Warren, skillfully weaves in actual political events into his tale, making it seem so real. I can’t help but congratulate him for making me stop at parts and ask, is this fiction or fact? I would highly recommend it to readers who enjoy a gripping tale of high adventure.”
