Praise

“A daring and big-hearted first novel…Like Dashiell Hammett, Dorst conveys a hard-bitten love of the physical San Francisco.”
New York Times Book Review

“In the same way Buffy the Vampire Slayer mixed high school and bloodsuckers, Doug Dorst combines cops and ghosts in his Alive in Necropolis. The result is a haunted variation on Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series…Imaginative and accomplished… Pitch-perfect.”
USA Today

“Rich, unsettling…truly haunting.”
San Francisco Chronicle “An intriguing mix of coming-of-age story, police procedural, and magical realism.”
Seattle-Times
