Editorial Reviews


"The Rabbit Skinners by John Eidswick is fully comparable and sometimes superior to any Jack Reacher or Lucas Davenport novel on the market. Such comparison is meant to convey just how good this book is. Besides the meticulously satisfying plot, this deftly-paced mystery thriller checks every box included in the mythical Writer's Guide to Writing. Namely, dialogue is pitched so finely tuned that one actually hears the characters speaking; these characters themselves are so well sketched, one thinks he must have met them somewhere before; and the myriad tiny details necessary to establish place are so lavishly but unobtrusively sprinkled throughout that one feels (and hears, and smells) himself to be fully there in person. And all of this precision writing skill is devoted to telling a marvelously plotted story about a 9-year-old missing girl...a truly exciting and highly enjoyable read." - Joel R. Dennstedt, Readers' Favorite
"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

"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

"This is 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 Skinnersentertaining and compelling." - Clarion Foreword
"Everyone should read this book." - Goodreads Review
