Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With an ability to make the shocking plausible, an elegantly edgy prose style, and characters who seem as real as old friends, Knopf displays his talents to perfect effect in this humane and haunting novel.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“A rollicking tale with lots of twists and turns, adding up to a great deal of enjoyment.” Washington Times
“Engaging…The excellent supporting cast…provide[s] valuable assistance when Jackie’s efforts stir up threats. Domestic problems and Homeland Security issues enliven a plot with slick twists that should keep readers switching their bets to the very end.” Publishers Weekly
“Jackie, a lawyer inclined to skirt the law, is persistent to the point of bullheadedness and sometimes too fearless for her own good. Readers may want to scream warnings to her in the suspenseful final pages of this fine hard-boiled crime novel, which effectively combines action and introspection.” Booklist

Two Time was one of thirteen mysteries listed as recommended summer reading in the New York Times Book Review, and Publishers Weekly chose it as one of the “Best 100 Books for 2006.” Head Wounds won the 2008 Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Mystery. Dead Anyway was listed on the 2012 Best Fiction lists of both Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. Knopf is a sailor, cabinetmaker, and advertising executive in Connecticut.
