Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"This is a dark book, made all the darker by Shepherd's stagy interpretation. AudioFile Magazine
The depth of emotion in Hart’s words is palpable, and listeners will feel every nuanced sentiment that the characters are experiencing. Library Journal
“Big, bold, and impossible to put down, Redemption Road had me from page one. John Hart is a master storyteller.” Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“There’s no easier way to say it: Redemption Road is simply great writing.” Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Redemption Road is as good as any of [Hart’s] previous novels and in some cases even better. His grasp of plot is still phenomenal, his creation of characters is still amazing, and his way with words is still magnificently acute…The ride of a lifetime.” Huffington Post
“A novel that has everything from torture and tortured people to beauty and what is the best in human nature. Hart manages to encompass it all. Beautifully.” Examiner (London)
“An intricately plotted crime story with plenty of twists and sharp turns…What’s truly satisfying is to see the characters discover their own truths―authentically, painfully, and at their own pace, the way it happens in real life.” Strand Magazine
“In this stellar crime thriller, Edgar winner Hart explores the human capacity for resilience and trust in the face of heartbreaking betrayal…Though Hart employs plot twists effectively, it’s his powerful, wounded but courageous lead whom readers will remember.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
