Praise for Never Turn Back:
“With gorgeous, spare writing, Swann lets this story unfold, one dark step at a time. As the secrets unspool, we’re drawn into a twisty, hardboiled, noir-style story of the dark side of family. But the author never lets his hero get too tough or bullet-proof. There’s a beating heart of vulnerability under everything that happens as Ethan Faulkner digs up the bloody past.”
—Emily Carpenter, Georgia Author of the Year Awards, Judge 

“An extraordinarily compulsive read…Swann’s writing packs a huge emotional wallop and delivers a breathtaking ending.”
Booklist starred review

“Swann presents a greased-lightning take on the hellish fury of a woman scorned…A wild, compelling ride from beginning to end.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Fans of literary crime fiction will want to take a look at this thoughtful outing.”
Publishers Weekly

“Page-turning suspense…[for] fans of Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay.”
Library Journal

“Swann has gifted us with a quiet bombshell…Never Turn Back is a perfect wake-up call if you are stuck in the reading doldrums.”

“Swann is a master of the kind of narrative storytelling style that artfully conveys both emotion and nuance.”
Midwest Book Review

“Full of emotion and drama…The characters are deep and nuanced.”
Manhattan Book Review

“A wonderfully unusual, utterly unpredictable twist of a puzzle with an edge…Its intelligent dynamic is breathtaking, its smooth pacing is flawless. A contemporary novel that tips its hat to multiple genres, Never Turn Back is intriguing, high-stakes fiction.”
New York Journal of Books

“The past comes back—with a vengeance—to bite a good-hearted teacher and his brash, broken sister in Swann’s excellent latest. I loved this twisty, sexy, fast-paced thriller.”
—Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Never Have I Ever

“Christopher Swann never disappoints. Swann’s unmistakable voice catapults this suspenseful story to the finish line, one dark secret at a time. A must-read.”
—J. T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of Good Girls Lie

“An intelligent and layered mystery that had me burning through the pages. The balance of darkness and redemption without losing a bit of the tightrope tension is a skill most writers achieve only after an entire career.”
—Brian Panowich, award-winning author of Bull Mountain

“Christopher Swann understands the dread that an incidental glance, a casual comment, silence between two characters can conjure. And it’s with this delicate but sure touch that he tells the story of a man trying to make sense of his violent past and prevent it from destroying the new life he’s built.”
—Emily Carpenter, bestselling author of Until the Day I Die
