Editorial Reviews

Review

"In the time-honored tradition of noir fiction, Quintin Peterson doesn't shy away from exploring the lengths to which people will go to feed their greed. In his world, things are seldom what they seem. They're generally much, much worse - but a heck of a lot of fun to read."

                                                                                              - Karen Lyon, The Hill Rag

As an undergraduate communications major at the University of Wisconsin, he wrote and performed in two plays for stage and videotape and received a Mary Roberts Rinehart Foundation grant for his play project, Change. A National Endowment for the Arts creative writing fellowship and a playwriting grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities followed. Subsequently, two of his radio plays were aired on WPFW-FM Pacifica Radio as productions of the Minority Arts Ensemble's Radio Drama Workshop '79.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steven M. Roth on January 10, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like most of Quintin Peterson's writing, this book is very interesting, well plotted, well written, and draws upon his vast knowledge of crime, criminals and the working of the criminal mind learned in his many years as a Washington, DC cop. I read everything the author [who prefers to be called "Q"] publishes because I like books about or by cops, and Q's are among the best out there.

I won't say any more about Q's story in this book so as not to spoil its freshness for the reader. Let me just say this: Do yourself a favor and read it, and then find the novels and other stories Q has already published and read them, too. You'll be glad you did. I know I always am.
