Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Rabbit Skinners by John Eidswick is fully comparable and sometimes superior to any Jack Reacher or Lucas Davenport novel on the market...a truly exciting and highly enjoyable read." - Readers' Favorite

"Eidswick (The Language of Bears, 2017) portrays his protagonist with great depth; Strait is a stoical combination of grit and emotional vulnerability. In addition, the author artfully raises provocative questions about the fraught relationship between race and institutional power. Finally, there's plenty of gripping action here, cinematically depicted." -
Kirkus Reviews

 "Part of what makes The Rabbit Skinners more than a one-dimensional mystery surrounding a kidnapped child is that John Eidswick takes the time to explore small town relationships, from infidelity and dubious friendships to the social and political connections that make or break a small town's people. The Rabbit Skinners embraces themes of good and evil, courage and fear, prejudice and love, and an unexpected touch of romance. Mystery readers will find it a compelling read from beginning to end."  -
Midwest Book Review

   "A solid, engaging and disturbing story with rich prose and curt dialogue, a noble protagonist whose flaws make him fallible, and a believable portrayal of the undercurrent of racism and violence that can infect a small town. Readers will find it well worth the price of admission." - 
BlueInk Reviews

    "The story rings true on many levels, from the suffering inflicted by Meniere's Disease and survivor's guilt to the details of professional detective fieldwork and the obstacles of bureaucracy. Themes of courage and strength in the face of adversity and evil help to make
The Rabbit Skinners entertaining and compelling." - Clarion Foreword

 
     "Everyone should read this book." - Goodreads Review
