Praise

"Psychologically acute . . .Magnuson’s first novel in a decade is well worth the wait."  

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Windfall does to the reader what found money does to its hero: It grabs hold and doesn’t let go.  Magnuson leads us expertly through the minefields of betrayal, the nature of success, the lure of materialism.  It’s what would happen if Alfred Hitchcock teamed up with Henry David Thoreau.  But at its core I>Windfall/I> is a fierce and taut thriller about the biggest crimes of all–the crimes of the heart."

–William Broyles, author of Brothers in Arms, former editor in chief of Newsweek, and founding editor of Texas Monthly

"A hugely entertaining novel.  No writer working today is better than James Magnuson at charting the humiliations of middle-class life, the dilemma of the good man who’s maybe not quite good enough.  He belongs in a line extending from Graham Greene to Robert Stone–writers who know how to pose urgent moral questions within the demands of the thriller."

–Anthony Giardina, author of The Country of Marriage
