“A superior work of action-packed suspense fiction. A natural-born writer, Elmore’s got an ear for dialogue and an eye for intrigue. The combination equals reading pleasure.”
—John Lescroart, New York Times-bestselling author of Betrayal
“A terse, Hitchcockian tale of a regular guy in extraordinary situations, holding back its secrets until the last delectable pages. I’m excitedly awaiting the next book from J. Saunders Elmore.”
—Olen Steinhauer, New York Times-bestselling author of The Tourist
“With wit, style and a depth of insight only firsthand experience can bring, Joel Elmore has written a tantalizingly wicked tale about an American everyman cursed with a bottomless thirst for French women and wine and an uncanny knack for complicating his life. A first-rate page-turner–not just deftly plotted but richly detailed, with vivid, unforgettable characters. I got caught up in the action and lost an afternoon, unable to put the book down as one plot turn careened into the next. A truly accomplished debut. I want more. And soon.”
—David Corbett, Edgar-nominated author of Blood of Paradise
