Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the most authentic voices in American crime fiction, Tanenbaum takes us on another turbo-charged ride down mean streets, with characters we’ve come to love. Hoax is a brillaintly plotted thriller with enough twists and turns to live up to its name and enough heart-stopping action to keep you turning pages through the night.” 

    Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author

  • “The action always unfolds slowly and deliberately, cleverly planned to the last detail, and the richly drawn protagonists constantly struggle with thought-provoking, hugely complicated questions about morality, faith, and family…Tanenbaum smoothly reprises events of the previous two books as he relentlessly builds suspense and gets ever closer to the hearts and minds of his singular characters.” 


  • “In vigorous and full-bodied prose, Tanenbaum gives dimension to a large cast of characters.”

    " If I had read this and not listened to it, I would have found it tedious, but listening to it was fine. It's not great writing and the plot is a bit cliched, but I found the twin boys cute, and I liked the relationship between the mom and daughter. "
