"[White Heat] reallycaught early 90s LA, in all its sordid glory. And had me turning me pages late into the night. I think WH is up there with the best of the LA novels, but has an air authenticity that many lack. Look forward to reading Broken Windows."
--Woody Haut, journalist, author of Neon Noir (Contemporary American Crime Fiction), Pulp Culture (Hardboiled Fiction & the Cold War), Heartbreak and Vine (The Fate of Hardboiled Writers in Hollywood)
"Expect the unexpected...in an action-walloping award-winner of harrowing twists and turns..."
--Gordon Hauptfleisch - Seattle Post Intelligencer and BlogCritics.org
"A gripping tale of prejudice and deceit, set against the tumultuous backdrop of the 1992 L.A. riots. White Heat is all the title promises it to be."
--Darrell James, award-winning author of Nazareth Child
"Written in a staccato, noir style as intense as the 1992 L.A. riots, White Heat is a stunning debut novel by L.A. native Paul Marks. It grabs you with the intensity of the riots and keeps the anxiety and tension pushing full-throttle right up to the bittersweet ending. Heat is a hard-hitting, noir detective thriller, that also deals with tough issues like racism, the diversity of racism, and the human condition."
--Andrew McAleer, best-selling author of The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists and Fatal Deeds
"The plot was interesting, and full of twists and turns... The characters' interactions, mannerisms, and dialogue also felt realistic. I fell in love with Duke, Jack, and Rita. I also loved Teddie, even though we never met her alive."
