Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Harvey is one of the best regionalists in the game, and the great city of Chicago is his beat. His street-smart but eminently civilized private eye, Michael Kelly, is in fine form in The Governor’s Wife.New York Times Book Review
“With his snappy patter, jaded outlook, weakness for mysterious women, and proficiency at violence, this former cop is squarely in the tradition of the classic gumshoes… Deft characterizations and lean, mean plotting.” Chicago Tribune
“Harvey’s book is written in the taut, spare style of modern-day noir. It’s an enjoyable ride…In his latest [The Governor’s Wife], he’s a master.” San Antonio News-Express
The Governor’s Wife is deeply rooted in Chicago: its neighborhoods, its ethnic communities, its politics…Every time the reader turns the page and thinks he knows what he’s going to encounter, there’s Harvey waiting to wallop him with a sandbag. Harvey does that: he surprises you. Repeatedly. Read this book. You’ll enjoy it a lot.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Harvey… knows Chicago like Raymond Chandler knew Los Angeles, and these mean streets come alive even as bodies pile up.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Harvey makes political corruption personal: this isn’t a story of anonymous millions being shuffled between various offshore accounts. The consequence of every decision in Kelly’s gritty world bleeds.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Narrator Stephen Hoye has become the preeminent voice of the Chicago private investigator Michael Kelly. Hoye has a distinct sound as he draws out his words to create a laid-back swagger for Kelly. The approach works perfectly for Kelly’s contemplative moments and even for his tough-guy encounters…and Hoye delivers convincing performances for all—whether NICU nurse, thug, ethnic police officer, or the governor’s wife…Hoye’s narration is engaging enough to keep listeners engrossed.” AudioFile
