Praise

Praise for The Forgotten Girls
 
“An eerie, suspenseful hunt.” — Booklist
 
 “Laukkanen combines great storytelling with deep compassion for the underdog.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Laukkanen is at his best in describing Mila’s grueling travels through the frigid Northwest in pursuit of the killer….The interplay between Stevens and Windermere as they race to save Mila are expertly handled.” — Publishers Weekly

“Yet another example of why Owen Laukkanen has been on my must-read list since the release of his debut novel.” —Bookreporter.com

Praise for The Watcher in the Wall

“Owen Laukkanen knows which crimes and misdemeanors are too monstrous to be ignored.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A gut-wrenching tale filled with empathy. This may be the best yet in a first-rate series. FBI agent Carla Windermere is such a wonderful series character. Either she or the perp is going down, and it damned well won’t be her.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Incomparable pacing. This is a guaranteed lost weekend for Laukkanen’s fans and for anyone who’s seeking a Lee Child–like adrenaline rush.” —Booklist

“Laukkanen’s fast-paced prose and short chapters pull readers along on a cross-country pursuit . . . It’s a true page-turner up to the final act, which quickly escalates into a fiery exchange of gunfire.” —BookPage

“The chemistry between the two agents feels authentic . . . and Laukkanen propels the reader through to an exciting and satisfying conclusion.” —National Post

“If you have not yet read Owen Laukkanen and are a fan of thrillers, then you are just missing out completely on one of the best authors in the genre. Laukkanen is a gifted writer who delivers not just a thriller, but he also gives us strong, realistic characters (especially his female characters) who make mistakes, but they always keep moving forward, especially when they decide not to be the victim anymore.” —Lynn Riehl, Nicola’s Books, Ann Arbor, Michigan

“Don’t expect the hair on the back of your neck to relax any time soon after you finish The Watcher in the Wall. Laukkanen is the real deal.” —Bookreporter.com

“The author’s experiences give this novel psychological depth and an urgency that drives the book and its readers to a breathless conclusion.” —Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
