Advance praise for Icarus:
"Like the master, Alfred Hitchcock, Russell Andrews delights in placing his unsuspecting regular guy heroes in nasty situations. And like the master, he knows how to manipulate the reader in fiendishly exciting ways I defy you to figure out whodunnit, why they dunnit, or how they dunnit."
–Janet Evanovich, author of Hot Six and Seven Up
"Icarus is a tidal wave of a thriller. Russell Andrews, who last delivered with the first-rate Gideon, tops that effort here with a chilling tale of a cornered man. It makes for as good a thriller as any since Frederick Forsyth owned the bestseller list. Icarus is a hands-down winner."
—Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and Gangster
"In this Vertigo for the twenty-first century, Jack Keller journeys through the chic high life and shady low life of trendy America. In his quest for a murderer — and for relief from his own crippling terrors — he takes the reader along on an electrifying ride. Author Russell Andrews has written a smart and exhilarating thriller!"
—Susan Isaacs, author of Lily White, Almost Paradise, and Shining Through
"Icarus is the smartest, hippest thriller to come along in years. It is so full of surprises that the only thing you are sure of in the end is that it’s even better than Gideon, Russell Andrews’s last book. It’s got people flying out of windows, crazed suspects all around, and very few characters who are what you think they are. How Oprah missed this I’ll never know!"
—Mike Lupica, author of Bump and Run and Jump
"Smart, sexy, scary, and superb — this thriller has it all. From the shocking opening chapter to the riveting finale, Icarus will leave readers feeling as though they devoured the entire book without once coming up for air. They just don’t come any better than this."
—William Bernhard, author of Murder One, Blind Justice, Cruel Justice, Dark Justice, and Deadly Justice
"Russell Andrews’s Icarus is furious, sexually fueled, and mind-bending a unique thriller. With subtle undertones of Hitchcock and Silence of the Lambs, Andrews takes the murder mystery genre into unexplored erotic and terrifying territory. Four stars."
—William Diehl, author of Reign in Hell, Thai Horse, The Hunt, Show of Evil, and Primal Fear
