Liam Mulligan is the most human, unpredictable, and anti-authoritarian fictional character I've met since Ranger Gus McCrae of Lonesome Dove. I love DeSilva's Cliff Walk. Mulligan is my new American hero. -- Howard Frank Mosher, critically-acclaimed author of On Kingdom Mountain and Waiting for Teddy Williams
A "sterling follow-up to 2010's Rogue Island
, which won Edgar and Macavity awards for best first novel. , , , Look for this one to garner more award nominations"- STARRED REVIEW in Publishers Weekly
"Wiseacre Mulligan is never less than compelling company, and the analogies between the newspaper business and the porn business are spot-on." -- Kirkus Reviews
"His plotting is exquisite." . . . "Terrific on every level." -- Booklist
"Sterling follow-up to 2010’s Rogue Island.... brilliantly limned supporting characters."
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"The epic, warts-and-all portrait of the city is scathing; ulcer-ridden wiseacre Mulligan ... is never less than compelling company; and the analogies between the newspaper business and the porn business are spot-on."
From the Inside Flap
"DeSilva knows his crooks, his snobs, and his working joes, knows what they do and how they talk about it. He also knows the newspaper business in all its sunset glory, and he's intimately acquainted with the nets of power, crime, and money woven into the fabric of Rhode Island. This is a series I'll be following." --S.J. Rozan, award-winning author of Ghost Hero
