Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A bit like Memento for Philadelphia Keri Blakinger, New York Daily News
There's a lot of flawed humanity in Devil's Pocket. . . . Richard Montanari's elegiac tone takes the curse off Shutter Man, a blood-drenched thriller about a group of imperfectly domesticated boys who came from the same blighted neighborhood and grew up to become criminals and killers-and cops. . . . Pay special mind to Detective Kevin Byrne, the ethically conflicted hero of Montanari's gripping police procedurals. Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
One of the New York Times Book Review's Best Crime Novels of 2016
