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

‘I tore through this one and it was worth giving up “gotta do” chores for this “gotta finish reading” page turner. Block was very good very early in his career and he’s only gotten better over the decades. Highly recommended. ’  

“Fast, tough, hard boiled and stripped to the bone. The narrative is swift and sure, the sex and violence brutal. It’s a portrait of a man discovering his true, inner self through a vicious masquerade….I tore through this one and it was worth giving up “gotta do” chores for this “gotta finish reading” page turner. Block was very good very early in his career and he’s only gotten better over the decades. Highly recommended.” -Blogger Frank Campbell
