Gary Reilly is the kind of writer who leaves you smiling at the sheer pleasure of his word choices. The Asphalt Warrior is a fun-filled read, and you can't help rooting for the the book's taxi driving hero. If Murph doesn't win your heart, it can't be won." -- Mark Graham, Co-Author of The Natanz Directive, St. Martin's Press (September 2012)
“The Asphalt Warrior is one of those rare books that a reader really should savor, line by line, taking time to enjoy the intelligence, sarcasm and dry wit of the main character, Murph. I found Murph to be laugh-out-loud and consistently funny, yet life-smart and grudgingly loveable.” -- Kathy Lynn Harris, Author of Blue Straggler, an Amazon #1 bestseller in comic fiction.
“Gary Reilly proves himself to be not just a gifted stylist, but a kind of Jedi Master of the understated." -- Fred Haefle, Montana Freelance Writer & Author of "Extremeophilia."

But the flaw in Murph's perfect plan of "never getting involved in the lives of his fares" is that he cares about people. He cares that they shouldn't make the mistakes that he is sure he can see in their future. And so, he changes lanes to "assist" them in their plights, despite his own rules.
Murph is a more than lovable every man and Reilly's incredible "stream of consciousness" writing puts you inside the head of this Denver cab driver and the little justifications that motivate him.
This book is a literary gateway drug and I mean that as a good thing. Reilly's writing is unique and ingenious. Murph is an easy character to connect with and Reilly's writing makes you like this guy. The story itself is not deep, but it takes you for a ride around Denver in a special way, and you won't want the ride to end. Luckily, The Asphalt Warrior is just the first in the series of Asphalt Warrior books.
Get in, take a ride and start you own journey with The Asphalt Warrior.
