Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A terrific read...A rich narrative of friendship, young love, and mounting suspense.” Stephen King
“A grand novel.” Ed McBain
“Smart, speedy, and stylish.” Jeffery Deaver
“Hogan’s sharp, often bawdy dialogue, his scenes of the four friends alternating between affection, suspicion and fury at one another; his sketches of their long-suffering mothers and girlfriends; his glimpse of the old mob chief who lurks in the background—are all first-rate.”  Washington Post
“Stunningly crafted...the plot...is swift and expertly built, the prose muscular and clean.” Seattle Times
“A riveting, splendidly detailed thriller.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
