Praise for Go-Between

“Nothing is as it seems in this terrific noir tale that channels Richard Stark’s stories.”
—Carole E. Barrowman, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“While today’s female-centric crime fiction has been swarmed with the kind of domestic noir made popular by Gone Girl, Lisa Brackmann continues to go her own way.”
—Los Angeles Review of Books

“Terrific…This might be the best “drug” book since Robert Stone’s brilliant Dog Soldiers or Don Winslow’s superb “Cartel” series. Brackmann’s mastery of the material rivals either of those and Go-Between establishes her as a force to be reckoned with in the crime genre.”
—Providence Journal 

“Brackmann goes beyond the simple and harmful morality tales of good cops and evil criminals. She investigates the very nature of crime. She explores who really profits from it. And she does all this in a kick-a** thriller that’s nearly impossible to put down.” 
The Arizona Daily Sun

“Big-money prisons, shady government deals, and the cannabis trade come together in Lisa Brackmann’s Go-Between. If you believe in conspiracy theories, this is the book for you. And if you don’t, it might make you a believer.”
—Mystery Scene

“A pure noir thriller.”
—International Noir Fiction

“Brackmann takes the noir formula—things start out badly for a hapless hero and keep getting worse—and gives it a feminist reboot . . . A fun, smart, and fascinating trip.”
—Reviewing the Evidence

“A tale of secret identities, for-profit prisons and the all-too-real war on drugs, this modern thriller is a great addition to any suspense lover’s bookshelf.”
—Brit + Co

Go-Between captures the nightmare of every person who’s ever done something ‘a little bit against the law’—and is waiting for the penalty stage of capture and punishment . . . A modern thriller with bite!”
—Kingdom Books

Go-Between is a perfect title. Michelle Mason is between lives, between names, between worlds, between versions of herself… Brackmann provides full access to Michelle’s every thought and observation.” 
—New York Journal of Books

“The edgy plot never lets up, touching on the war on drugs, for-profit prisons, and nefarious nonprofits.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Brackmann has creatted a damaged but likable protagonist.”
—Library Journal

“Subtle but satisfying.”
—Booklist

Go-Between isn’t just the kind of book you can’t put down until you finish—it’s the kind of book you don’t want to let go of once you’re done: The characters draw you in, the plot hurtles you along, and every sentence crackles with wit. With Go-Between Lisa Brackmann proves, once again, that she’s one of the best in the business.”
—Elizabeth Little, award-winning author of Dear Daughter

“Lisa Brackmann’s Go-Between pits the supporters of legalized marijuana and sentencing reform against the shadowy forces of the multi-billion dollar private prison industry, and with a deft sleight of hand, she transforms powerful social insight into a nerve-zapping luge run of lies, murder, dirty politics, drug smuggling, love, betrayal and black ops run amok.”
—Craig Faustus Buck, author of Go Down Hard

“A terrifying political thriller with a powerful message. Brackmann’s characters, from cynical Michelle to villainous Gary to damaged Caitlin, are layered and relatable. A compelling read and a thought-provoking story about the dangers of a broken system.”
—Mette Ivie Harrison, author of The Bishop’s Wife

Praise for Lisa Brackmann

“Lisa Brackmann’s novel gets off to a fast start and never lets up . . . Be prepared for a wild ride.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Timely and hip . . . Brackmann can write.”
The Boston Globe

“A pulse-racer.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Smart, funny, dark, hip . . . exquisite. [Brackmann] had me in a choke-hold of utter happy reading splendor from, literally, the first sentence, and never let up.”
—Cornelia Read, author of the Madeline Dare series
