Praise

“Undiluted noir.” - Booklist

“…pulpy, ritualistic, and satisfying—a guilty pleasure packed into a time capsule from 1960.” - Kirkus

“…impeccable hardboiled prose with sharp as a razor dialogue, femmes fatales in perfect deshabille, villains galore, gang wars and a chilling lesson in how to disappear and evade justice. That is, until fate, coincidence and the foibles of human nature inevitable catch up with you. First rate.” - Maxim Jakubowski

Sinner Man is a splendid example of the form, and is highly recommended for both fans of and newcomers to the genre.” - Sequart

 
“It was well worth the effort. SINNER MAN is essential reading for the multitude of Block fans. It is also recommended as a finer example of the kind of stories that flooded the market in the heady, early days of the paperback publishing industry.” - Bookgasm

“A damn fine crime novel…” - Criminal Element  

“Sinner Man is classic pulp from a master.” – Crime Fiction Lover 

“It’s an excellent book, too, much too good to have been lost for decades. But we can be glad that it’s been found and reprinted.” - James Reasoner

“Block’s terse, hardboiled and sardonic prose complements his fast-paced story. He cleverly makes readers root for his unsympathetic narrator. Sinner Man is grade-A, retro pulp fiction that will not disappoint fans of Block, Dorothy B. Hughes or Mickey Spillane.” - Shelf Awareness

“Sinner Man is one of crime fiction’s most exhilarating rediscoveries. Half a century in the making, the icing on this intoxicating cake is the wonderfully pulp hand-drawn illustration on the cover – the kind that drew me to Hard Case Crime in the first place. Be sure to pick up this great novel. It’s been worth the wait.” - Hits The Fan

“Gripping, well crafted and the book is certainly a page turner.” – Nudge Book
