“Awesomely funny...Witty, fast-paced detective work makes for a good mystery, but the story’s sly, seamlessly conceived dinosaur underworld contains all the elements of a cult classic.”
—Entertainment Weekly (A rating)
“Debut novelist Eric Garcia pulls off this parallel dino world to a T (Rex). [His] descriptions are delicious...inventive and imaginative. He cleverly avoids what could have been a one-joke book with charm, sly humor and a terrific narrative pace.”
Praise for Casual Rex, by Eric Garcia:
“[Casual Rex] is thornier than Garcia’s audacious debut, Anonymous Rex—but it’s still delightfully strange and funny.” —The Seattle Times
“Eric Garcia is one of the few innovators in this overworked genre....What Garcia gave us in his 1999 novel Anonymous Rex and has given us in this sequel, which is quite as clever and amusing, is an old-fashioned private-eye yarn, complete with tough-talking detectives, beautiful and mysterious babes, villains of the first order and a puzzle in the classic tradition....Garcia makes us laugh at his mystery while creating real suspense. It’s a difficult feat, but, once again, he pulls it off.”
Praise for Matchstick Men, by Eric Garcia
“Eric Garcia proves himself an expert at the art of the con.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“In his twisty new novel, Matchstick Men, Eric Garcia pulls a nifty con game of his own with a hall-of-mirrors story where what you see is rarely what you get. It’s an elaborate shell game of mooks and motives, and when the pea is finally revealed, it’s the most dexterous sleight-of-hand since Kevin Spacey strolled out of a police station in The Usual Suspects.”
—The Boston Globe

A great series - can't wait for the next installment!
Fans of Eric Garcia and the Dinosaur Mafia already know what to expect. Those who don't - in this world, dinosaurs are NOT extinct, but have adapted to live among us - unseen due to the use of disguises, girdles and lots of glue. What is amazing is that while you are reading the book, you just go with it because Garcia has created this world SO convincingly. Not to be missed by anyone who enjoys darkly funny noir.
We hope that Garcia comes out with more Vincent Rubio for us to enjoy!
