Editorial Reviews

Review

"Privateers grabs you by the collar and won't let go until Charlie Newton gives the nod. Rarely have I read a book so absorbing, so sharply written, so filled with action that it thrusts you into the real world and makes you look hard at its beauty and its heartbreak." --Jonathan Eig, New York Times bestselling author of Get Capone
 
"
Privateers hits the ground running and builds to hurricane-level intensity. In the midst of this white-knuckle thriller, Newton shows how the West perpetuates many of the third-world evils it claims to want to cure." --Andrew Diamond, award-winning author of Impala
 
"There's a search for gold in the plot of 
Privateers, but the real gold is Newton's writing. Riffs conjure Hunter Thompson or James Ellroy, but Newton owns them all. Words shimmer off Caribbean waters as the story dodges, feints, and streaks to the next turn." --Kirk Russell, author of Dead Game
 
"I spent thirty years as a Chicago homicide detective, gang unit/tactical lieutenant, and undercover in narcotics. I know and understand real fear intimately. 
Privateers made my heart pound like I was facing the real thing. Can still taste the blood in my mouth." --Denny Banahan, author of Threshold of Pain and The Author of Dead Men
