Swierczynski, toot-sweet

Spinetingler Magazine is sold on Swierczynski's Expiration Date, which they've declared is "entertaining as all hell. [Swierczynski's] prose is clean and the action never flags, new rules and twists popping up every couple of pages and hurtling you helplessly towards the climax. In other words, what you’d hope for in a Swierczynski novel.

Swierczynski is one of the great “just one more chapter won’t hurt, I’ll still be able to function in the morning” writers the crime world has today, and Expiration Date is nowhere near a fucking exception. Pick that shit up and for-fucking-go some sleep toot-fucking-sweet, dear reader."
