Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of hard-boiled detectives that make Spade and Marlow look like wimps will enjoy Dynamite Road.”

    TheBestReviews.com

  • “Klavan’s riveting blend of mystery, wiseass attitude, and old-fashioned moralizing makes for a wild ride.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Many authors try to be overly dramatic, but not Klavan. His pace is perfect, and his reading smooth. Klavan particularly excels with his portrayals of investigator Jim Bishop, who not only finds himself in the middle of the action, but also appears to fall for Kathleen Wannamaker, whose husband becomes ‘expendable’ when Bishop enters the scene.”

    AudioFile

  • “Filled with characters straight out of a 1950s potboiler, this rip-roarin’ story is tailor-made for hard-boiled fans with a soft spot for the pulp masters.”

    " Not bad. The story was good. It took me forever to get through it though. It just didn't capture my attention for forever. Ultimately, the main character was just bizarre and I couldn't relate. "

    " This is a fast paced thriller about a detectice agency in San Francisco which has been hired to investigate mysterious doings at an airport in a remote area. I hope that this is the first in a series about this agaency. "

    " I've never heard of Andrew Klavan until I picked up this book.It was an interesting story,but slightly reeked of the zillion previous detective books I've read in my life.I still enjoyed it though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dany | 3/10/2011

    " I lol loved when Katherine got mad at all the men in her life at the end and smarted back at everybody without a care to her safety. Weiss is now a favorite of mine...I love his compassion for flawed humanity and his personal thoughts about people he encounters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 2/1/2010

    " Wow. First-rate PI series. The story blends the young "I" narrator (cub detective) with the hard-boiled accounts of PIs Bishop and Weiss. "
