"A brilliant first novel… The River Sorrow stuns from page one on. This is the first crime novel to capture late-20th century mid-American ennui and loss without whining. This is a book that oozes power." — James Ellroy, author of The Black Dahlia and White Jazz.
"A one-of-a-kind read… gives an enlightening glimpse into the dramatic nexus of cops, crooks, and science." — James Grady, author of Six Days Of The Condor andThunder.
"The River Sorrow is a beauty — tough, complex, and thoroughly entertaining. It’s not just a fine first novel, it’s a wonderful book. Like a postmodern Ross MacDonald. I loved it." — James Crumley, author of The Mexican Tree Duck
