Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Daniel Friedman takes the considerable momentum from his Macavity-winning debut novel Don’t Ever Get Old and builds on it for Buck Schatz’s newest turn, Don’t Ever Look Back. Friedman’s sophomore outing is darker, grittier, and more political (but just as funny) as his first. It not only lives up to, but indeed surpasses, all expectations for a sequel.” Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author
Don’t Ever Look Back is a funny, smart, and vibrant work of crime fiction. Good luck finding anything more from a novel this year.” Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author
“Alternately humorous and moving sequel…The howdunit of the 1965 crime will please Golden Age puzzle fans.” Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
“Friedman’s sophomore series entry for the angriest old cop you’ve ever met (after the Macavity Award-winning Don’t Ever Get Old) doesn’t disappoint. Through the violence (Buck’s not a gentle guy) you’ll be laughing with tears streaming down your face. It doesn’t quite top the first title, but it’s a fine sequel and a must-buy!” Library Journal
“Enjoy the plot, which even has a locked-room mystery packed into it. Savor the resonant prose as a reminder of how flabby much bestseller writing has become. Delight in Buck’s deadpan humor, but don’t fall for it. No codger cuteness here; his nastiness can shock.” Booklist
“Retired detective Buck Schatz continues to hunt bad guys and make life hell for the staff at Valhalla Estates Assisted Lifestyle Community for Older Adults…A worthy successor to Buck’s fine-tuned debut.” Kirkus Reviews
