“This is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read this year and David Boop is a writer you need to put on your radar.

You can thank me later.”Ron Fortier, author Terminator: Burning Earth, Mr. Jigsaw, Brother Bones.
“She Murdered Me with Science is fast-paced, stopping for the occasional breather as Glass tries to piece together clues, scientific-method style. If you're looking for a great combination of the private-eye novel, historical and science fiction, then you should find all those tastes satisfied here.” Josh Vogt, author of Enter the Janitor, Forge of Ashes.
“I absolutely loved this book. It was great to be able to read something that was written like this. I have never read the “pulp science fiction of the Forties and Fifties” and this was a great experience for me. David’s characters were very in-depth as was the plot. I hope David continues to write books like these.” Melissa Cornwell, Romancingthebook.com
“She Murdered Me With Science showcases David Boop's storytelling talent in a tale of intrigue when a disgraced scientist turned forensic analyst uncovers a conspiracy to take over the United States…enthusiastically recommended for fantasy and science fiction enthusiasts, and would make enduringly popular addition to community library collections.” Midwest Book review
“Boop goes beyond the usual suspects when the conspiracy is uncovered for an interesting alternative history twist. There’s nonstop action showing a love for private eyes, mad scientists and blues music.” Fred Cleaver, The Denver Post
“A delightful mix of hard-boiled detective story and good old fashioned pulp science story, with a dash of Jazz thrown in for flavor.” Mark Urbin, The Urbin Report “Classic deadpan noir…with a sci-fi twist. David Boop will keep you guessing — and laughing — to the end.” Mario Acevedo, author Rescue from the Pleasure Planet, Nymphos of the Rocky Flats.
“She Murdered Me With Science has a oddly compelling futuristic noir style to it that gives the book a sharply defined, innovative feel…Read as science fiction, however, rarely is anything implausible and that's probably where She Murdered Me With Science works best. The mix of history and science here, most of it fact and some of it obviously fiction, and the political paranoia that existed between the US and Russia in the years after World War II, all contribute to what is, in the end, a really good, believable (at least in the context of science fiction) and well-reasoned thriller.” MysteriousReviews.com
“She Murdered me with Science takes the best parts of the pulp era and infuses them with witty dialog, intriguing characters, and real world 1950’s events…. David Boop’s novel is a fun, wild ride that you’ll have trouble putting down once you start reading it.” Bobby Nash, author Evil Ways, Domino Lady: Threesome.
