"Rosen doesn't subvert the genre; he revels in it. Rather than diluting noir's shadowy textural and moral murk, his use of science fiction heightens the tension—not to mention the stakes . . . Depth is starkly glamorous, telegraphed in clipped prose and sharp dialogue that's as taut as a garrote." (NPR)
"Heinlein meets Hammett in this whip-smart whodunnit set amid the billowing fog and rising waters of a future New York." (Chuck Greaves, award-winning author of Hush Money)
"I have long admired Lev Rosen's strange, genre-bending work—his riff on the detective story is elegant, surprising, and, yes, deep." (Dan Chaon, National Book Award finalist, author of Await Your Reply)
"Simone is a female detective in the Kinsey Millhone and V.I. Warshawski mold: tough, tenacious, and pragmatic." (Library Journal)
"Sci-fi meets detective fiction, and politics provides the glue. Lev AC Rosen has crafted an easy, fast-read, vacation-ready thriller." (The Strand)
"Rosen has written an intrigue-laden detective story that takes advantage of the setting's mystique... Secrets flow like the tide, everybody is hiding something, and trust can get you killed." (Science Fiction Book Club)
"An enthralling murder mystery set in an intriguing world... Dive in." (The London Sun)
"Everything about this book is just effortlessly cool... Depth is one of the most original crime novels I've read in a long time." (Bookshelf Butterfly)
"Rosen drew me in like a moth to a flame... Depth is a fresh take on dystopian fantasy. Rosen is a definite author to watch and love." (Nihil Sed Tempus)
"Holy cow! What a delightful mashup of ‘40s detective noir and science fiction.” (Betty J. Roiger The Journal (New Ulm, MN))

This book is an homage to noir detective stories grafted atop a dystopian science fiction future. I was less interested in the mystery than in the world the author created, one that seems increasingly likely. I've thought a lot about the world imagined here, both while reading the book and since finishing it. Ultimately, "Depth" left me feeling slightly optimistic about the possibility of humanity's adaptability and survival.
so no matter how I tried...I could not keep enough interest in to finish reading it.
