Praise for Tower of Babel

“Sears’s Tower of Babel is a fascinating bit of alchemy brewed of real estate, money, murder and betrayal.”
—Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author

“Michael Sears is a born storyteller, whose sardonic wit, documentarian’s eye for detail, and unflagging sense of empathy I’ve long admired. Tower of Babel is another crackerjack entry into his catalogue, an intricate, original, and more-than-a-little-seedy underdog story that kept me up long past my bedtime, my palms sweaty and my every nerve on edge as I raced through the pages toward the climactic—and wholly satisfying—throwdown. Sears is a master at creating tension; once this book sinks its hooks into you, it won’t let you go.”
Owen Laukkanen, bestselling author of Deception Cove

Tower of Babel is so full of New York characters and locations that you’d swear it was written on asphalt. It has no potholes, though, just a fast-moving and, because it involves corrupt politicians and shady real estate developers, completely believable plot. If you live here, you’ll love it. If you don’t, read it to see what makes us the way we are.”
 —SJ Rozan, bestselling author of Paper Son

“A contemporary Philip Marlowe comes to Queens in this wonderfully engaging caper . . . Sears absolutely nails the voice of his endearingly vulnerable tarnished-lawyer turned sleuth—Tower of Babel is a terrific book.”     
—Hank Phillippi Ryan, bestselling and award-winning author of The Murder List

Praise for Michael Sears  
Winner of the Shamus Award 

“An exciting and fascinating tale of big money and even bigger crime, an insider’s glimpse into a world where fortunes can be made or lost at the click of a button and the stakes can be life and death . . . moving, deeply human story.”
—Joseph Finder
“Extraordinary! Michael Sears has a knack for completely complicated, thoroughly likable characters, caught up in a deadly web of lies, greed, and financial corruption.”
—Lisa Gardner
“Superb writing, a riveting plot, and a hero I’m still thinking about days afterward. A must-read!”
Tess Gerritsen 
“Exciting and compelling.”
The Wall Street Journal
Black Fridays is definitely worth the investment.”
