Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Charlie Huston is the real deal.” Peter Straub
“Huston writes dialogue so combustible it could fuel a bus and characters crazy enough to take it on the road.” New York Times Book Review
“Among the new voices in twenty-first-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston…is where it’s at.” Washington Post
“Huston reminds me of all my favorite writers—Pete Dexter, Robert Stone, Crumley. If there is such a thing as compassionate noir, Charlie has found it. He’s a true marvel.” Ken Bruen, Shamus Award–winning author
“Huston doesn’t let his battered, tormented protagonist rest for one moment in the exciting final volume of his trilogy featuring Henry ‘Hank’ Thompson.” Publishers Weekly
“Hank Thompson comes full circle in this fitting end to a mayhem-packed trilogy that also packs a potent emotional punch.” Booklist
