  • "With sharp dialogue, inventively gruesome violence and the darkest of dark humor, Lehane's fifth novel proves again that he's the hippest heir of Hammett and Chandler"

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • "A masterpiece. Stunning. Brilliant. Mesmerizing. Satisfying. All that and so much more... Steal this book if that's the only way you can get your hands on it"

  • "Lehane's gritty psychothrillers have carved a distinctive patch on the map of contemporary crime writing... One of the most electrifying thriller writers"

    Guardian
