Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In her first two books (No Mercy, 2010, and Mercy Kill, 2011), Mercy Gunderson, a U.S. Army sniper, returned home to South Dakota, took over the family farm, went toe-to-toe with the local sheriff, and solved a couple of mysteries. Now she’s an FBI special agent working her first case, investigating the death of the niece of the Eagle River Reservation’s newly installed tribal president. As expected (at least by readers of the previous two Gunderson novels), Mercy jumps in with both feet, soon coming to the realization that there’s only one way to catch this killer: hunt him down. The novel, like Mercy herself, is two-fisted and hard-edged, with an affable demeanor that hides a chilling darkness. We can’t help liking Mercy, even though she has some seriously troubling aspects to her, and Armstrong, who also writes the gentler Julie Collins mysteries, is a deft plotter, keeping Mercy (and the reader) in the dark until she’s ready to pull the curtain and let the light in. Another solid entry in this promising new series. --David Pitt


“People always ask me what I read and I tell them Lori Armstrong. There comes a point when I need to read her like I need a shot of whiskey at the end of a hard day; Lori’s writing is like that, unforgiving and deeply satisfying.” (Craig Johnson, author of The Cold Dish and The Dark Horse )

“Mercy is one of the best female characters around, and you can quote me on that.” (Lisa Gardner, author of Love You More and Live To Tell )

“Mercy Gunderson shoots straight onto the list of my favorite heroines. A master of snappy dialogue and twisting plots, Lori Armstrong proves again why she is an award-winning author. [Her books are] a hard-edged, fast-paced, no-holds-barred roller coaster ride.” (Allison Brennan, author of Original Sin and Fatal Secrets )

“[Armstrong] has created a grittier character in Mercy Gunderson.…Fans of the Collins mysteries should embrace this new novel with open arms, but the author could pick up some new readers, too, on the strength of this new heroine.” (Booklist)

“[A] smartly written, high-velocity tale.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“Mercy Gunderson [is] a complicated and fascinating character whose presence in modern novels is way overdue.” (USA Today)

“With a gutsy heroine, sharp humor, and a strong sense of place, Armstrong has created a winning series. The female veteran perspective is particularly fresh—not unlike a young V.I. Warshawski gone rural. Craig Johnson and C.J. Box fans should like it, too. Highly recommended.” (Library Journal (starred review))
