“[A] ferociously driven, intricately woven thriller … As for the writing, it’s brawny and vigorous and seasoned with dark humor…. Stroud provides a brutally frank glimpse into government deceit, personal ambition and criminal motivation.”
Publishers Weekly

“Densely stylish, superdramatic waterfront suspense from Stroud…. gritty … leavened by classic hard-boiled humor…. In a field overrun with snapping jaws, this bites through the bone.”
Kirkus Reviews, (starred review)

“Don’t pick up Black Water Transit unless you have enough time to finish it, because you’re not going to put it down, except maybe to take a few long breaths. Carsten Stroud is an exceptionally talented and smart writer. Razor-sharp characters, time-warp pacing, and a hell of a plot. This book has it all.”
–Nelson DeMille, author of The Lion’s Game

Black Water Transit is a nerve-jangling thrill ride–taut, gritty, gripping, edgy, and very well-written. Carsten Stroud has given us an enthralling crime novel. Very highly recommended.”
–Harlan Coben, author of Tell No One and Darkest Fear

“I made a terrible mistake with this book — just before bedtime I read the first chapter and met Earl V. Pike, ‘an aerodynamic little mook named Martin Glazer,’ and a small crowd of crazy S.O.B.s who murdered my sleep til 5 AM. I read to the last page of this wild, scary, uninhibited ride and wanted to start all over again. So I did. Carsten Stroud has always been in the front rank of suspense novelists. This is his best.”
–Jack Olsen, author of The Last Man Standing: The Tragedy and Triumph of Geronimo Pratt and The Night of the Grizzlies.

Black Water Transit is a roller-coaster ride into a dark world of corruption, ruthlessness and high intrigue. Psychologically penetrating and peopled with unforgettable characters, this is tough-minded suspense fiction at its finest.”
–Jonathan Kellerman, author of Dr. Death

“Gritty, funny, and savagely entertaining, Black Water Transit is the best book I’ve read in a long, long time. If you dig Elmore Leonard or Michael Connelly, you’ll fall in love with Carsten Stroud. Yes, Black Water Transit is that good!”
–Christopher Reich, author of Numbered Account

“Carsten Stroud knows cops, feds, and criminals, but in Black Water Transit he gives us much more than anecdotes and dry facts. This is exciting fiction that moves. It’s hard, fast, and real.”
–George P. Pelecanos, author of Right as Rain
