Review

‘Very, very good. It’s all here. Reacher is keeping an eye on this guy’ (LEE CHILD )

‘A singular new talent! Storey’s Nothing Short of Dying is nothing short of brilliant. It grabs you from page one and simply doesn’t let go. This man is a born storyteller!’ (JEFFERY DEAVER )

'Storey captures the American landscape in beautifully written passages that contrast starkly with the ugliness of some very bad hombres' (NELSON DEMILLE )

'Paints the mountains and gorges of Western Colorado red with blood. Clyde Barr a modern day mountain man crossed with ex mercenary is not a man to be messed with' (C.J. BOX )

'Nothing Short of Dying may be the year's best debut thriller. Fans of Jack Reacher will love Clyde Barr, a dark, classic hero who can hold his own against any evil' (WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER )

Nothing Short of Dying may be the year's best debut thriller. It leaps at you like a wolf, sinks its teeth in, and won't let go. Fans of Jack Reacher will love Clyde Barr, a dark, classic hero who can hold his own against any evil. The writing is fine and fast, and the high country of Colorado is painted in strokes of brilliance. I guarantee that readers of this first novel are going to clamor for more.”
—William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award winning author of Ordinary Grace and Heaven's Keep

“Very, very good. It’s all here. Reacher is keeping an eye on this guy. In the rear view mirror for now, but that’s closer than most.”
Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Make Me and other books in the Jack Reacher series

Nothing Short of Dying contains furious, non stop action that paints the mountains and gorges of Western Colorado red with blood. Clyde Barr—a modern day mountain man crossed with ex mercenary—is not a man to be messed with.”
C.J. Box, New York Times bestselling author of Badlands and Off the Grid

“A sweaty thriller by a first time novelist who really knows how to handle himself in these thickets…Tough as they come hero Barr heads for the Colorado backcountry, where the plot really takes off. Storey knows and loves this rugged territory.”
New York Times Book Review

“Immensely enjoyable…[Clyde is] a Grail Knight in disguise, rescuing the good and punishing the bad…Encounters with bad guys are appropriately, cinematically violent, and the rich, sensory descriptions enhance a well told story. And the bartender does, too. She says she wants to see ‘how the Clyde Barr movie ends.’ So do we.”
Booklist

“Nothing Short of Dying takes you into the underbelly of the American West where some things haven’t changed since the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Erik Storey’s main character, Clyde Barr, is the quintessential man’s man, a modern version of every Wild West cowboy, sheriff, and drifter you’ve ever admired in books and film. Storey captures the American landscape in beautifully written passages that contrast starkly with the ugliness of some very bad hombres. The novel features great action scenes, fast pacing, and well drawn characters, with sharp and blunt dialogue that always rings true.”
Nelson Demille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lion’s Game and Nightfall

A singular new talent! Storey's Nothing Short of Dying is nothing short of brilliant. It grabs you from page one and simply doesn't let go. This man is a born storyteller!”
Jeffery Deaver, #1 international bestselling author of The Bone Collector and The Coffin Dancer

“Grandly cinematic…What makes Clyde Barr great isn’t just that he’s haunted, driven, and lethal, but that he’s paired with a strong, independent, and capable woman who refuses to be a victim—Allie Martin is exactly my kind of gal. Together, they make a modern day ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ out for their own kind of justice.”
Taylor Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of The Informationist

“A thrill ride—Erik Storey's Nothing Short of Dying hits the ground running. Clyde Barr isn't the usual protagonist, he's a man who has been knocked down but keeps getting back up with a vengeance, so buckle up and hang on because you're in for one hell of a read.”
Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire Mysteries, basis of the Netflix drama Longmire

“Jack Reacher fans will delight in meeting the shrewd loner Clyde Barr, but it's his fearless companion Allie who will sass her way into readers’ hearts. Highly recommended!”
Kira Peikoff, author of Living Proof and No Time to Die

“Nothing short of thrilling…Erik Story is a gene splice of Lee Child and Joe Lansdale. In this modern day gunslinger classic everyone is a bad guy and Clyde Barr is the baddest of them all.”
Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Contagious and Alive

Gritty…authentic…a terrific page turner.”
Howard Roughan, #1 New York Times bestselling co author of Truth or Die and Honeymoon, and author of The Up and Comer

Nothing Short of Dying is a relentless thrill ride that hurtles the reader into dark and interesting places. Erik Storey's somebody to watch...and read.”
Robert Ferrigno, New York Times bestselling author of The Horse Latitudes and Prayers for the Assassin

 “Pretty damn good … Storey doesn’t pull any punches with his crisp, in your face dialogue and vivid action, and neither does his hero. Clyde’s sense of commitment to his sister is both emotional and inspirational as he confronts seemingly impossible odds. Jack Reacher would be proud.”
BookPage

“A sweaty thriller by a first time novelist who really knows how to handle himself in these thickets…Tough as they come hero Barr heads for the Colorado backcountry, where the plot really takes off. Storey knows and loves this rugged territory.”
New York Times Book Review

“A stunning, action packed novel that is perfectly paced and beautifully written … I loved everything about this book …Storey is one of the hottest new authors in a genre that has badly needed an infusion of young talent.”
The Real Book Spy

 

“Clyde Barr is the kind of Reacher Rambo Liam Neeson manly man that readers have been eating up since Achilles and Hercules. The book doesn’t just hurry from one shootout to another, it hurtles…Storey kept me going to the end.”
—William Dietrich, Huffington Post
