Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Smith establishes a commanding presence, a gift for complex plotting, and an ability to create richly drawn characters who draw the reader into the action from the opening scene.” Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Terminal City
Bear Is Broken is an exciting read.” New York Journal of Books
“Reminiscent in tone of early works by John Grisham and late ones concocted by Michael Connelly, Bear Is Broken reeks with the cynical authenticity of the games cops and lawyers play.” January Magazine
“Smith’s powerful legal thriller debut, the first in a series, grabs the reader by the throat and doesn’t let go…Assured prose and taut plotting add up to a winner.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Smith’s first novel offers a superior blend of amateur-detective mystery and belated-coming-of-age novel cunningly masked as a legal thriller…Smith combines a smart but clueless protagonist forced to drop his naïveté; a gathering of well-drawn, equally motivated suspects; and, yes, some plot-furthering sex and violence. San Francisco’s gritty streets and neighboring redwood forests add to the appeal, and the addictive characters and the quirky, sideways look at the system close the deal on a terrific debut.” Booklist (starred review)
“This engaging debut by a practicing Alabama attorney features well-drawn if somewhat unlikable characters and enough plot twists to please any mystery fan.” Library Journal
“The suspects are familiar types…but newcomer Smith juggles them with supernal dexterity, and the final showdown is hair-raising. Sensitive, ingenious, and suspenseful. A series is promised and very welcome indeed.” Kirkus Reviews
“This debut San Francisco noir is so atmospheric you can practically hear the cable cars and fog horns on the bay…R. C. Bray performs skillfully and serves the overcrowded plot well.” AudioFile
