“The unlikely tale of an unsuccessful cop, a cute grocery check-out girl and her dead boyfriend gives Doolittle (Rain Dogs) plenty to chew on in his latest crime novel…. Doolittle has penned a character-driven yet suspenseful novel about choice and consequence, with a well-crafted lead and a narrative style that’s punchy and sincere. Though Worth’s motivation is sometimes unclear (even, at times, to himself), readers looking for a tense crime drama—hold the procedure—will enjoy getting inside the head of this well-meaning sad sack.”
And in more review news, find out why James Clar thinks this book "is a flat out pleasure to read.”
“Swierczynski chronicles a long, frenzied and near-fatal night in Philadelphia…Rapid-fire pacing, hard-boiled dialogue and excellent local color make up for the unlikely twists and turns of this entertaining thriller.”

lKirkus Starred Review
Author: Schwegel, Theresa
Publisher: St. Martin's Minotaur
Publication Date: 1/2/2007
"What Schwegel's second novel (after Officer Down, 2005) might lack in innovation it makes up for with convincing local color and the winning depiction of Weiss. Hotheaded, hormonal, yet vulnerable and eager to please, the 23-year-old's bright future in the genre seems inevitable. Solidly writtencoming-of-age tale with an endearing and believable hero."
