Editorial Reviews

“It’s Fulmer’s achievement, in each of his novels, to have nailed both the city and the music.”

Washington Post

“A violent, twisted story of betrayal and intrigue, power and passion—all set to the beat of rock and roll.”

Philadelphia Tribune

“Terrific! Great characters, great plot.”

Jon Polito, actor (American Gangster)

“If you’re looking to get lost in a mystery, look no further.”

Nick Tosches, author of Never Trust a Loving God

“The road-not-taken material is handled so beautifully by Fulmer that we can glimpse bits of ourselves.”

Mystery Scene magazine

“[The] small Pennsylvania town possesses a Twin Peaks–like sense of menace that drives the narrative and keeps us rooting for Richie to return to the relative safety of Manhattan.”
