Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Valin’s prose is spare and at times chilling, the plot is complex yet coherent, and Cincinnati emerges as a city with a vibrant and distinctive personality.” Publishers Weekly
“Using the detective story as a medium, Valin writes complex dramas that explore the depths of human emotions and motivation. As Stoner becomes more real with each book, the novels themselves live as fine examples of what a first-rate author can accomplish in the genre.” Library Journal
