Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Hanging Tree is a terrific story, a dark-hearted mystery entwined in a bullet-fast thriller. Gruley is one of the good ones.” John Sandford
“Haunting, observant, and filled with complex characters that will remind you just how much you don’t trust your neighbors. The Hanging Tree will pry its way into your imagination. And it won’t leave.” Brad Meltzer
The Hanging Tree is an engrossing, sure-footed mystery that manages to be both suspenseful and deeply touching.” Gillian Flynn, New York Times bestselling author
“As with Starvation Lake before it, The Hanging Tree is an exceptionally well-written novel by an author who has mastered the conventions of his genre.” Associated Press
“Absorbing...Gruley vividly evokes the frigid Michigan winters and the even chillier atmosphere of an insular community determined to keep its secrets.” Publishers Weekly
“Regardless of your level of hockey interest, you’ll relish Rich Orlow’s subtle vocal technique, his unflagging attention, and persuasive performance.” AudioFile
“Gruley captures the hardscrabble life of a recession-rocked small town and the deep interrelationships of the inhabitants while delivering complex, intriguing characters caught up in trouble. His take on contemporary journalism is Evelyn Waugh–worthy. Another winner.” Booklist
“[The Hanging Tree] has it all—suspense, mystery, romance, detection, [and] clear-eyed hometown nostalgia.” Kirkus Reviews
