Review

Praise for The Policeman’s Daughter

“Captivating . . . In the rough neighborhood that Ms. Boyce—a retired Atlanta police officer—depicts with heartbroken affection, a loving partner may also be violent, and “youth” is rarely a synonym for “innocence.” . . . “You have to be mighty careful how you unravel a mystery,” a wise neighborhood woman warns Salt. “You go pulling one thing and we all feel a tug. We’re all bound together.” And bound up right with them is Salt, who worries over all these citizens as if they were her own family, because the oath she swore to protect and defend was a sacred one.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Got my attention right away . . . [Salt is] our favorite street cop.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“Former Atlanta police officer Boyce vividly captures the toll that working such a beat takes as she fleshes out Salt, with her imperfections, humanity, and strong moral sense. A worthy addition to a gritty, compelling series.”—Booklist

“Captivating . . . Introduces a cast of multidimensional characters that bring the gritty neighborhood to life. . . . This taut, authentic depiction of life as a female beat cop will resonate with crime fiction fans.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for the Sarah Alt Novels

“Superlative . . . Boyce, a former Atlanta police officer, knowingly explores an officer's calling, as well as moral questions, while maintaining realistic dialogue and Atlanta scenes.”—Cleveland Plain-Dealer

“A superior crime novel . . . the author deftly develops strong characters, crackling, believable dialogue and great descriptions. Boyce’s latest is a dark, fast-paced, violent tale pulsating with authenticity. It’s intense crime fiction at its best!”—Lansing State Journal

Old Bones is an engaging police procedural with authentic characters, voice and action; it is also a rich literary work delving into racism and law enforcement relationships with the public. Boyce's history in the Atlanta Police Department provides an astute perspective that makes this novel so much more than a bad-guys-versus-good-guys showdown. She reaches deep into the heart of her subject and acknowledges, ‘The incidents had their roots in slavery, Jim Crow, and the legacies of poverty and systemic racism.’ Dark, haunting and disturbingly reflective of the world Boyce lives in, Old Bones is astounding.”—Shelf Awareness (starred review)

“What’s this? A female cop who doesn't look like a runway model and doesn't go mano a mano with psychotic killers?  Trudy Nan Boyce may be a first-time author, but she was in law enforcement for more than 30 years, which should explain why the stationhouse personnel and forensic details in Out of the Blues feel so authentic.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“Exceptional . . . I figured authenticity would thrum from the dialogue, reality would pulse from the plot and the blues would be the narrative’s soundtrack. I was correct on all counts.”—Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
