"An original and compelling read from beginning to end, "The Cost of Crude" by author Inge-Lise Goss clearly demonstrates her master of the mystery/suspense genre and is very highly recommended..."--Midwest Book Review
"The Cost of Crude is a work of fiction--a modern-day murder mystery, set against the backdrop of a two large-scale oil companies dueling for maximum profits. It is a page-turning thriller that continuously challenges the reader's assumptions about what will happen next." --The Portsmouth Review
"Inge-Lise Goss' romantic thriller, The Cost of Crude, is exciting and fast-paced. The author's experience auditing oil and gas companies makes the story feel authentic and real. Gwynn and Ruben are great main characters, both headstrong, independent and determined to keep things professional, and it's fun watching them interact. The plot is well-developed and the reader is swiftly thrown into action from the very first page. I enjoyed seeing how Ruben and his security team worked together and functioned as a team, complete with undercover agents and even a doctor who has miracle healing salves that work overnight. The Cost of Crude is also filled with political intrigue and the main story line is especially relevant with current concerns over the environment and the effects the oil and gas industries are having on it. The Cost of Crude is recommended reading." --Jack Magnus, Readers FavoriteReviewer
