Modern American literature at its most eye-opening and important and crime fiction at its compelling, excellent best
All the ingredients drive the story through a terrific shoot-out and surprises to an explosive climax. Genius!
Thomas Mullen writes the opposite of escapist fiction: his thrillers force the reader to confront the realities of "skewed" Southern justice, police brutality, civic corruption and mind-boggling racial prejudice . . . Mullen is "an expert button-pusher". His heartfelt, heavy-hitting, feel-bad fiction makes your blood boil
An exemplary and compelling series . . . Enlightening and admirable
