“Hear no evil does not mean evil is not there. SECRET SIGNS is a murder thriller set in the Deaf culture surrounding Washington DC. SECRET SIGNS is a remarkable and fun read and is very highly recommended.” ~Midwest Book Review, James A. Cox, April 2011

“I opened this book one morning and could not put it down until I finished reading it later that day. TJ Waters did a good job of keeping me, as a reader, in suspense. It is a mystery book with lots of twists, angles, drama and real life situations. I would highly recommend this book for drama, mystery, and suspense reading.” ~SigNews, Delanne Woodall Hamlow, April 2011
