Among the praise for Deed to Death:
"Deed to Death grabs the reader from the very first page and doesn't let go. With a lightning pace, a gutsy heroine, and jaw-dropping twists, this is a mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end. An outstanding debut!"
--Boyd Morrison, author of The Vault and The Ark

"D.B. Henson's novel is a chilling exploration of how little we sometimes know about the people we love. It's also good fun. Exquisite plotting, stunning twists, and a heroine you can't stop rooting for make Deed to Death a fantastic debut. This is one book you don't want to miss!"
--Allison Leotta, author Law of Attraction

"In Deed to Death, D.B. Henson delivers a can't-miss, compelling whodunit set in the upmarket real estate game. A real page-turner--I read this in one long bite, through the night and into the next morning."
--Patrick Quinlan

"Deed to Death is like coming down that first hill of a roller-coaster. Buckle up, hold on tight and be prepared for a little whiplash."
-- R.J. Jagger, author of Lawyer Trap
