Suspenseful, powerful, thought provoking—straight from today’s headlines. The Dolphin reads like a movie with no waiting to cut to the chase.
Dean Rowe, Producer/Director Member, Directors Guild of America
Hallenstein certainly doesn’t pull any punches with his dark, often bleak tale…Stark and harrowing, with a troubled protagonist’s inner turmoil magnified by a tangible evil.
Hallenstein demonstrates a remarkable gift for creating rich, engaging, and wholly human characters. In the sexually frank and terrifying world he creates, important social questions beg to be addressed.
Rebecca Pastor, Editor/Educator/Writer
Amidst the twists and turns of a first-rate thriller, a revelation occurs about the way we raise kids. Bold storytelling. Greater than the sum of its parts.
Ellyn Wrzeski, Award-Winning School Superintendent
Enlightening in its depiction of lives torn apart by over-reaching laws. From start to finish, The Dolphin’s one wild ride.
Carol Fetzner, Psychologist
The Dolphin’s going to make a terrific movie!
Michael Denneny, International Award-Winning Editor
The Pace steadily grows. Tension tightening with each chapter. The last hundred pages had me glued to the book.
Vivian Archer, NetGalley Review
Hallenstein had me sitting on the edge of my chair… Not only is his prose terrific, his characters are unforgettable.
