“A stunning debut. Well-researched, tightly plotted, and teeming with vividly-drawn characters. Gazala has a great voice, as well as a clear gift for breakneck pacing and narrative drive. A rich and rewarding read.” 

Raymond Khoury, NYT Bestselling Author.

“An exciting read, highly recommended” -- 5 Star Amazon review by Midwest Book Review:

“The truth is something that is very hard to handle. "Blood of the  Moon" is the tale of David Rivers and his astronaut father's legacy. His father Michael, losing his mind to disease and age, holds a secret from his trip to the moon. David is on the brink of finding this secret, but soon realizes it may have been kept a secret for a reason, as the world around him begins to collapse and the truth may only make it worse. "Blood of the Moon" is an exciting read, highly recommended.”

“Richard Gazala has written a spellbinding, scintillating first novel. With the pacing of a Tom Clancy novel and the intelligence of a Dan Brown novel, this book should be on everyone's reading list. His descriptions of places and characters make you feel as though you have been there and know these people. There are enough twists to keep you riveted, enough humor to keep you entertained and enough reality to make you believe every word. This is a book that would make a great movie and I hope that is in the works. I can't wait to read his next book. Brilliant!”

Kudos for Trust and Other Nightmares

"I loved Gazala's first book, Blood of the Moon. This book is different from that one, but just as good. Maybe better. It's a group of five short horror stories, and it kept me up all night. Every one of those stories could  be a script for a TV show. Actually, after reading the one called  Showtime, I'll never watch all those television ghost hunter shows the same way again."

"I couldn't put it down. It was a scary good page turning time. This writer doesn't waste any words and still manages to pull off some great tales. I would recommend this to all diehard horror lovers."

"I finished this book while flying from Moscow. The stories are vastly different from the other book (Blood of the Moon) by the same author, but I enjoyed the stories just the same. Highly imaginative and yet strangely identifiable. I loved the philosophical, unexpected nature and subtle complexity of these stories. This is one I will think about for days."
