"Matt Coyle has expanded his substantial talents in Night Tremors, his second mystery. This book matches the quality of Coyle's impressive debut, Yesterday’s Echo, and then some. Tight, smart and surprising, Night Tremors, breathes fresh life into the PI tradition and entertains us all the way."
―T. Jefferson Parker, three time Edgar Award winner and author of Full Measure, and The Famous and the Dead
“There are plenty of pretenders to Dashiell Hammett’s legacy, but Matt Coyle nails it in his latest. Night Tremors is dark, devious and thoroughly disarming, breathing new life into the hardboiled P.I. genre. Sam Spade would raise a glass of whiskey in appreciation.”
―Hilary Davidson, Anthony and Crimespree award-winning author of Blood Always Tells
"Following an Anthony Award-winning debut isn't easy, but Matt Coyle slammed a homer. Hard, tough, humane―Night Tremors is outstanding!"
―Robert Crais, Anthony, Macavity, and Shamus Award-winning author of Taken and Suspect
“Rick Cahill is not a happy man. The former police officer turned PI still has nightmares about a man he killed two years ago, and he feels that he is responsible for the murder of his wife. Despairing of taking more cases involving the tracking of unfaithful spouses, he decides to help a lawyer he despises free an imprisoned man who may have been unjustly convicted of murder. The case puts him at odds with both the police department and a nasty biker gang and leads to a high-speed chase around San Diego. Solid hardboiled thriller fare.”
“VERDICT Coyle doesn’t disappoint in this sophomore entry after the Anthony Award–winning Yesterday’s Echoes. In this tale we find all the elements that garnered the first book such high praise: complex characters, snappy dialog, a fast-paced plot, and a clever blending of crime noir tropes with today’s culture. The gods seem to take delight in persecuting Rick Cahill, but readers will relish this fast-paced and complex whodunit.”
“Night Tremors is Matt Coyle's second superb thriller featuring the flawed, but likable, PI Rick Cahill. Coyle keeps the plot progressing at a solid pace with tight prose and a sufficient amount of unforeseen twists and turns to sustain readers' interest to the shocking conclusion. Fans of PI thrillers, like me, will find Night Tremors an excellent reading experience―and eagerly anticipating the next Rick Cahill novel.”
“Matt Coyle is a reincarnated Raymond Chandler. Following his Anthony Award-winning debut, Yesterday’s Echo, Coyle astounds readers with Night Tremors, which packs the punch of a rocket-propelled grenade.
With more plot twists than a California cloverleaf, there’s one hairpin turn that left me breathless―and Rick Cahill on the verge of taking his last breath. One of my best reads in years, Night Tremors has a spectacular “Matt” finish.”
"...Night Tremors kept me turning pages quickly. And I enjoyed every one.”
