Editorial Reviews

Review

“Coleman writes some of the best prose in modern crime fiction…stunning.”—Booklist
 
“Outstanding....Coleman doesn’t pull any punches or settle for pat character arcs in presenting a realistically flawed Gus, who realizes that his morality “was not so much a search for the truth as a set of rationalizations that let [him] sleep at night.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Soulful.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Part police procedural, part human interest story, part philosophical monolog, and totally fun reading.”—Library Journal

“Told in vivid prose mingled with hard-boiled action, Coleman continues to evoke the sensibilities of a bygone era of crime writers. No one today is doing this better.”—Deadly Pleasures

Praise for Where It Hurts

“A gut punch of a novel, a murder mystery layered with grief, greed, and grit. Coleman is as good as Chandler, Hammett, or Ed McBain.”—Nelson DeMille
 
“One of the greatest voices in contemporary crime fiction, and one of the best storytellers, too. I loved this book. Nobody does it better.”—Lee Child
 
“Superb . . . another standout series . . . in Coleman’s hands, all the standard elements seem as radiant and new as a freshly peroxided blonde. . . . Where It Hurts is one of those evocative mysteries that readers will remember as much for its charged sense of place as for any of its other considerable virtues.”—The Washington Post
 
“Stellar series kickoff . . . Coleman’s moving portrayal of a man in deep, deep pain, a tightly constructed plot, and a gift for making Long Island seem like James Ellroy’s L.A. add up to a winner.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Gus . . . is absolutely one of genre veteran Coleman’s best-drawn characters. . . . He meets his tragedy and its consequences with a considered straightforwardness, and his desire for justice reawakens in time with the investigation’s quickening tempo, hopefully signaling the start of a series.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“Coleman has long been one of the best crime novelists in the business. . . . Where It Hurts is a superb detective novel in the Raymond Chandler tradition, featuring fine prose, a suspenseful yarn and a compelling main character who will leave readers hungering for the next installment.”—Associated Press
