"For the first time since The Godfather, a family of criminals has stolen my heart. This is a brilliant mix of love and violence, charm and corruption. I loved it."--Nancy Pickard, bestselling author of The Scent of Rain and Lightning
"You don't choose your family. And the Rand clan, a family of thieves, is bad to the bone. But it's a testimony to Tom Piccirilli's stellar writing that you still care about each and every one of them. The Last Kind Words is at once a dark and brooding page-turner and a heartfelt tale about the ties that bind."--Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Darkness, My Old Friend
"Piccirilli straddles genres with the boldness of the best writers today, blending suspense and crime fiction into tight, brutal masterpieces."--James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony
"A stunning story that ranges far afield at times but never truly leaves home, a place where shadows grow in every corner . . . superbly told, with prose that doesn't mess about or flinch from evil."--Daniel Woodrell, PEN USA award-winning author of Winter's Bone
"There's more life in The Last Kind Words (and more heartache, action, and deliverance) than in any other novel I've read in the past couple of years."--Steve Hamilton, Edgar Award-winning author of The Lock Artist
