Editorial Reviews

Review

“Robert McClure is the real deal, an author who produces pulp fiction the way Chandler and Hammett did—with depth and heart.”—Otto Penzler, editor, The Best American Mystery Stories
 
“Too compelling to put down.”
—Roger Hobbs, bestselling author of Ghostman
 
Deadly Lullaby is, at heart, a father-son story, but one in which the father is a ruthless gangster and the son a cynical cop. I loved both of these flawed characters. Robert McClure has written a rousing debut, elevated by pitch-perfect dialogue and a whiplash pace.”—Peter Swanson, author of The Kind Worth Killing

“The writing is excellent, and the family relationship offers an interesting angle.”
—I Heart Reading

Robert McClure read pulp fiction as a kid when he should have been studying, but ultimately cracked down enough to obtain a bachelor's in criminology from Murray State University and a law degree from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law. He is now an attorney and crime fiction writer who lives and works in Louisville, Kentucky. His story "My Son" appeared in The Best American Mystery Stories, and he has had other works published in MudRock: Stories & Tales, Hardboiled, Thug Lit, and Plots with Guns.

DEADLY LULLABY, my first novel, published by Penguin-Random House on September 29, 2015, is an expansion of my short story "My Son." Calmann-Lévy has purchased the French language rights to the book, Ikar has published the Slovakian rights and Euromedia the Czech rights. Sony Pictures & Entertainment has also purchased an option to produce DEADLY LULLABY on the screen. I'm obviously biased, so I'll simply show you what early reviewers have had to say about it:
