Publisher’s Weekly
“Boyle shocks readers into the recognition that life, in all of its subtlety, will constantly contradict itself. A fine debut; one hopes to see more of McMorrow.”

Booklist
“Fans of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser will love McMorrow, a quintessential male who’s tough, funny, macho, and intelligent, who thrives on danger, and who has a girlfriend who’s almost as cool as Susan Silverman. All he lacks is a sidekick like Spenser’s Hawk.”
