Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A twisty, unfailingly entertaining trapdoor of a novel.” Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author
“The wry, witty private investigator is back in this sequel to Broken Ice. Fans of classic hard-boiled crime novels of the 1930s and 1940s will appreciate Nils’s intelligence and likable coworkers, who star in a novel that is timely, not old-fashioned, and featuring a riveting story.” Library Journal (starred review)
“I want more of Nils Shapiro.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on Gone to Dust
“Sharp wit, complex characters, and masterful plotting make Goldman a writer to watch.” Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author
“Blends his storytelling with irreverent humor…will engage and intrigue.” Library Journal (starred review) on Gone to Dust

This One Will Stick With Me

When I saw that a new Nils Shapiro book was being released I knew that I was going to love it even before MacLeod Andrews spoke the opening of the book.  Goldman's writing in both Gone To Dust and Broken Ice were both fantastic.  I've gotten to know Nils in books one and two and now we're really getting into the nitty-gritty of his personality and life by the time The Shallows picks up.

This story was fast-paced but also well thought out.  Goldman is able to write a story that I have to keep listening to.  He just kept throwing in little twists and turns into The Shallows that kept me up late into the night.  Nils is an interesting and deep character that is still being developed three books in.  I love that about him and about this series.  I'm still learning about the main character. I think you could have picked this book up out of order and understood almost all of it.  There is definitely some references to the other stories (taking an arrow to the arm for example).

Blackstone's choice to work with MacLeod Andrews was perfect. He is the voice of Nils in my head now.  And it's been a perfect match since book one. I love when it just works like that and the Shapiro stories is a definite case of it being the perfect fit.

I'm not sure how many more stories Goldman plans to write in this series - but I will definitely be picking them up. Another win from me, and another Suspense/Thriller that I won't be able to shake for some time.
