Praise

“Levien is the new must-read thriller writer.” —Lee Child

“A punishing piece of fiction, overflowing with intrigue. . . . [With] enough cutthroat action to keep your eyebrows in upright position for days.” —The Free-Lance Star

Where the Dead Lay delivers on all counts. It is crime fiction at its finest.” —Christopher Reich
 
“Violent and compelling. . . . This is American thriller writing at its rocket-fuelled, roller-coaster best.” —Daily Mail

“Fast-paced, well-plotted and moving. . . . Levien has an ear for dialogue that many of us don’t often hear. . . . Gripping.” Indianopolis Star
 
“David Levien is a marvel. His dialogue is straight-up, so street that it’s a wonder the pages aren’t coated with grit. His descriptions are true to life, real and unflinching, a combination of Mickey Spillane, Wallace Stroby and Richard Stark, but nonetheless all Levien.” —Bookreporter.com
 
Where the Dead Lay is written with such natural power, is so attuned to the story and the reader, that you might wish you could unread it, just to experience it a second time.” —Bookotron.com
