Quotes & Awards

  • “An astonishingly well-written literary novel that just happened to be about (or roundabout) a crime.”

    Oxford American

  • “The protagonist, ex-convict Tim Sunblade, is a quintessential antihero, an unrepentant bastard who executes a daring armed-car robbery in Colorado with the help of a call girl, Virginia, whom he picked up in a backwoods Mississippi motel. The details of the crime and its aftermath are vividly described, and the love-hate relationship between Sunblade and the woman and the demons in both that lead to their downfall are masterpieces of dark-side character development.”

    Bill Pronzini, Mystery File
