Editorial Reviews


A tight, tense crime novel about a stranger in a strange land trying to outrun the ghosts of his past. Kirk Kjeldsen's Shanghai is a terrifically fresh and evocative setting, and the action jumps off the page.
- Lou Berney, Edgar and Barry Award-nominated author of Whiplash River, Gutshot Straight and The Long and Faraway Gone

Kjeldsen creates drama and danger with ease, and the events that follow are riveting. This is a literary thriller in the best sense of the term...His smart, penetrating story is not to be missed.
- The New Jersey Star-Ledger

Tomorrow City is a vicious little tale of men and violence and the sucking black hole of the past. A coiled and sleek throwback noir, best read in one shot. More please.
- Elwood Reid, author of If I Don't Six, Midnight Sun and D.B.

With spare but riveting prose - and the rare ability to elicit the reader's sympathy for a criminal - Kjeldsen has produced a thriller with plenty of the requisite shocks, a fully drawn protagonist, and a serious look at issues of justice and morality.
- The Richmond Times-Dispatch

Tomorrow City is darn near a perfect book - fierce, intelligent, gritty and absolutely convincing. You can certainly count me as a fan of Kirk Kjeldsen.
- Martin Clark, author of The Jezebel Remedy, The Legal Limit, Plain Heathen Mischief, and The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living

In Tomorrow City, the dark past of a former American criminal catches up with him in the chaotic streets of Shanghai.Exciting action in an exotic setting. Read. You'll enjoy.
- Tom Epperson, author of The Kind One and Sailor and co-writer of One False Move and The Gift

Tomorrow City
unfolds with grace and power, building to a cinematic climax that reverberates long after you've finished reading. This is thriller writing at its finest. Kjeldsen is one to watch.
- Carlo Bernard, writer of The Great Raid, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and executive producer and writer of Narcos

Kjeldsen packs this novel with vivid characters and difficult choices. The action sequences are fast and tense... Tomorrow City is a riveting tale of intrigue... Fans of dark literature cannot afford to miss this one.
- Noir Journal

I had a twofold pleasure in reading Kjeldsen's debut. As a writer, I admired his skill at evoking sense-of-place and his uncommon ability to evoke sympathy for a criminal. But the real payoff came as a reader:Tomorrow City is such a cracking good story.
- Leighton Gage, author of Perfect Hatred, Blood of the Wicked, and Every Bitter Thing

The plot rolls along efficiently, Brendan is a suitably compromised but ultimately decent protagonist and there are some nifty twists, as well as a nicely judged downbeat conclusion... Kjeldsen knows his genre, and there's plenty to like here.
- That's Shanghai

Kjeldsen's prose is direct and to-the-point, yet wonderfully evocative when describing the various sights and conflicting characteristics of modern-day Shanghai... Perhaps the best news is that Tomorrow City maintains its suspense from beginning to end, and thus, keeps us curious about Lavin's actions and eventual fate. You can't ask much more than that from any crime novel.
- Bookgasm

Kirk Kjeldsen has written a one-sitting novel with an ex-con protagonist you'll eagerly follow across the globe as he tries to shake his past. Tomorrow City is as exciting as it is smart as it is heartbreaking.
- Michael Kardos, author of The Three Day Affair and Before He Finds Her

A brooding tail of escapism and consequence... Kirk Kjeldsen paints a vivid picture of the city with an attention to detail that will delight anyone who has spent time here. It's a rare talent for someone to be able to create such a sense of place.
- Talk Magazine

Kirk Kjeldsen jabs a needle into the soft spot where nightmares intersect with real life and injects a steady dose of speed. Tomorrow City is a relentless, surprising and harrowing tour of the fascinating underside of Shanghai.
- David Rich, author of Caravan of Thieves and Middle Man
