Praise for Kent Anderson’s Night Dogs:
"The best cop novel I have ever read. There’s never been anything like it."
"Fiercely authentic and deeply disturbing…Extraordinary."
—Los Angeles Times
"Anderson makes his mark in Wambaugh country with his eloquent, literary voice and an anguished, haunting sensibility. Many novels have been written about the lives of cops and soldiers, but few have probed the American propensity for violence as well as this one."
"Night Dogs reads like Long Range Reconnaissance. If you come back alive, you’ll be different. That’s mastery."
"Night Dogs is not just a fine book, it is an important book."
"Be warned–start Night Dogs before dinner, forget dinner, next comes glaring morning sunlight and muscle cramps. This is very good writing!"
–Janwillem Van de Wetering
"Kent Anderson knows that wisdom is mourning."
–A. A. Attanasio
"Every so often, you come across a crime novel that flat-out blows you away and restores your faith in the entire genre. Night Dogs… is one of those books. I think it’s the best novel I’ve read, period, in the last couple of years."
–George P. Pelecanos
