Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Haas builds characters who are complicated, memorable, and sharply drawn. His spare, lean prose wastes no words. Haas develops a powerful and compelling voice and spends his scant 200 pages building suspense, creating atmosphere, and telling a compelling yarn. An unflinching little gem of a story: violent, dark, and unrelentingly entertaining.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Haas’ absorbing fourth thriller featuring the contract killer known as Columbus tests the proposition expressed in the book that ‘lies are popular and truth is the uninvited guest who spoils the party.’ The well-constructed conclusion packs a powerful punch.” Publishers Weekly
“Columbus’ charm and dark humor offer a refreshing break from the sociopathic-assassin mold, and Haas’ gutwrenching tale moves at breakneck speed.” Booklist
