"Gabriel Blackwell . . . pulls off such a nifty trick with Shadow Man, it makes me sort of hate him for my not thinking of it first."
-Joe Clifford, The Ampersand Review
"Shadow Man unfolds like Miller's Crossing as scripted by Tom Stoppard, with the daily call sheet penned in disappearing ink."
"The shadow man, Hammett himself says in one of the book's opening chapters, is meant to blend in, to disappear by alwaysbeing there. Which is a particularly apt description of Archer himself, who in the book's pages would seem to disappear again and again, slipping through our fingers just when we think we have him in our grasp, until by book's end, we're left wondering how we didn't notice him standing there, right next to us, all along."
-American Book Review

"It's easy enough to be seen when you want to be. Easy enough, too, to not be seen, if that's what you're after. But to be both at the same time? It's like someone telling you to act natural, or not think of a pink elephant."
