Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Estranged from his family, Jackson Donne is surprised and angered when his sister demands that he help her as their mother slips toward death from the effects of Alzheimer’s. Donne’s mother is now living in the past and speaking cryptically of tragic events that took place 70 years ago. Now those events threaten the family that Donne has just rejoined. His brother-in-law’s Manhattan restaurant is bombed. His elderly aunt and uncle are murdered, execution-style. His brother-in-law is kidnapped, and his sister has no access to the money demanded as ransom. It falls to Donne to save his family. This second Jackson Donne novel is uneven. Donne’s nemesis is a fascinating character, but how he came to be so preternaturally clever isn’t explained. Scenes of Donne’s mother’s decline, however, are knowing and movingly written, and the gritty New Jersey locale seems an ideal setting for portraying the evil that men do. Not yet 30, author White has plenty of time to polish his skills. Keep an eye on him. --Thomas Gaughan


Praise for the novels of Dave White

"AN EMPTY HELL is a compulsive redemption story that speeds to a confrontation in a high school gym and takes the series to a place rich with possibilities."
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"Dynamite... the characters, the situations, the pacing, the structure, and the writing are so good."
Publishers Weekly

"(A) dark and extremely suspenseful thriller...turns Northern New Jersey into a setting worthy of any classic noir detective series...White never allows the darkness of his backdrop to get in the way of a carefully constructed plot that keeps us racing toward new twists that are not revealed until the last few pages."
Connecticut Post

"It is amazing how good an author Dave White has become, breathing life into the PI genre like Dennis Lehane did years ago with Gone Baby Gone."
Sons of Spade

Praise for Dave White

"White is one of a group of younger writers reimagining the P.I. novel by giving Donne solid connections to his culture (he's not alienated from his world) and a moral self-awareness I think is more interesting than the traditional P.I. code of behavior. This book flies."
—Carole Barrowman, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on NOT EVEN PAST

"Dave White brings the goods. Skillfully crafting a tale that thriller fans will devour at lightning speed, yet meaty enough that mystery fans will delight in fitting the pieces together."
CrimeSpree Magazine

“Dave White is everything you hope for in a crime novelist, delivering both white-knuckle suspense and nuanced characters, propulsive action and an emotional wallop. These are books that both invigorate the genre and are also, truly, built to last.”
—Megan Abbott, author of Dare Me

"White has written a PI novel that is both traditional and fresh, one of the few new talents to join this much-plowed field with something interesting and original to say. Fans of detective novels will, we hope, be enjoying his work for years to come."
Chicago Sun-Times on WHEN ONE MAN DIES

"Everybody wins when a classic form, such as the private-eye novel, meets up with a class act, such as Dave White. In his remarkable debut novel, WHEN ONE MAN DIES, White manages the neat trick of respecting the genre's traditions while daring to nudge it toward something new and unexpected. And Jackson Donne is a wonderful character, someone with whom readers will happily share many beers in the Olde Towne Tavern for years to come. Lots of promise here -- in Donne and White. I'm rooting for both of them." —Laura Lippman

"Will grab most readers from its opening sentences. Fans of hard-hitting, uncompromising private investigators will hope that Donne ditches his college dreams and continues to pound the pavement."
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on WHEN ONE MAN DIES

“A terrific novel, a unique and artful blend of the PI and the Police Procedural in a plot as nicely tangled and sexually violent as a cat fight, a story as deceptively simple as your first love and as fatal as your last car wreck. It's a great read.”
—James Crumley, Dashiell Hammett Award-winning author of The Last Good Kiss on WHEN ONE MAN DIES

"Stunning...fulfills the promise of his debut...the author does such a fine job of depicting the inner conflicts of his fallible but ultimately heroic protagonist."
Publishers Weekly on THE EVIL THAT MEN DO

"Intricate plotting and nonstop action make this a nail-biting read from start to finish. White, winner of the Derringer Award for When One Man Dies, is a writer to watch." —Library Journal

"White makes good use of the urban and suburban geography, accurately depicting the terrain. But that's not what makes his sophomore effort so readable and engaging. Rather, it's White's realistic depiction of family dynamics--readers will be struck by the sheer humanity on display in this novel, from Donne's strained relationship with his sister and brother-in-law, to the tragedy of the PI's mother's valiant but futile struggle with Alzheimer's disease, and finally, to the sacrifices that are sometimes required to keep one's family intact and safe." Mystery Scene

"Dave White's second novel, The Evil That Men Do, absolutely confirms and fulfills the promise of his highly regarded debut Jackson Donne novel, When One Man Dies; so, simply stated, readers looking for top-notch hard-boiled noir fiction featuring an intriguing protagonist and complex characterizations need look no further than Dave White's deftly plotted novels." —Bookloons

"White handles his characters with a balance of emotional tension and action that drives this novel from the critical incident to a conflagration that leaves the survivors stunned."
