Praise for The Best of Evil

“With The Best of Evil, Eric Wilson reveals himself as THE author to watch. His writing sizzles; his characters grab you and won’t let go; his story intrigues, entertains, and makes you think. This is a page-turner you’ll talk about with your friends.”
Robert Liparulo, author of Germ and Comes a Horseman

“The world through Aramis Black’s eyes is mysterious, rich, and brewing with surprise.”
Brandilyn Collins, Seatbelt Suspense

“Eric Wilson masterfully weaves together mysteries from past and present in this gutsy thriller. Wilson is an extraordinary writer with one of the freshest voices in fiction today. The Best of Evil is first-rate suspense.”
–Gina Holmes, Novel Journey/Novel Reviews

“A work of amazing maturity and skill.”
James Byron Huggins, author of Cain, The Scam, and Sorcerer

The Best of Evil is riveting reading–Eric Wilson at the top of his game.  He combines suspense, history, a reality-game show, full-blooded characters and yes, palpable evil, into one addictive read.  You’ll love his flawed but charismatic protagonist, Aramis Black, a man prepared to live by the sword and die by the sword.  Quite simply, The Best of Evil is the best of fiction.”
Randy Singer, author of The Cross Examination of Oliver Finney

“In The Best of Evil, you get the best of Eric Wilson–the only novelist I know who can make you wish you’d paid more attention in your seventh grade history class.  Wilson manages to make Meriwether Lewis into a figure of contemporary fascination in this intriguing tale, set in modern-day Tennessee.  Aramis Black is serving up hot coffee and sarcasm when a customer gets shot dead, propelling us into a story with all the twists and turns of a Smokey Mountain road.  A stolen hankie, a pretty girl, a lock of hair, simmering family tensions, and a complicated hero with a dark past–The Best of Evil has it all.”
Melanie Wells, author of When the Day of Evil Comes and The Soul Hunter
