Praise

Praise for the Cecil Younger investigations

“Straley knows how to wrap deadly violence in a bubble of black humor that suits the novel’s beautiful but harsh setting, where whales open their maws to dine on oceans of salmon fry and men kill one another while ravens fly overhead, screaming with laughter.” 
The New York Times  

“Mr. Straley’s prose continues to dazzle . . . His word-pictures have a hallucinatory brilliance appropriate . . . to the eerie beauty of the Alaskan landscape.”
—The Wall Street Journal

 
“Inimitable.”
—The Seattle Times 
 
“A fascinating Alaskan setting, great characters, a highly unusual plot and remarkably good writing. It’s a winner.”
—Tony Hillerman, New York Times bestselling author of the Leaphorn and Chee novels
 
“John Straley is an Alaskan treasure. Baby’s First Felony is a page-turning, darkly hilarious murder mystery turned upside down. With the help of a crazy cast of characters, investigator Cecil Younger is taking on the criminal underbelly of an Alaska seaside town, even as he faces the equally terrifying trials of parenting a teenager. As always, Straley has brought his unflinching eye, compassionate heart and lyrical voice to the story. Northern noir at its best.”
—Eowyn Ivey, Pulitzer finalist and New York Times bestselling author of The Snow Child
 
“The voice is so original that is can only belong to John Straley . . . Definitely up there with the great ones.”
—Chicago Tribune

“Thoroughly enjoyable and slightly wacko . . . Ironic humor reminiscent of the Coen brothers and violence worthy of Quentin Tarantino.”
—The Boston Globe

 
“Straley is one of the best prose stylists to emerge from the genre in a long time, and his evocation of the chilly, dangerous landscape and climate effectively sets a foreboding tone.”
San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Straley’s done the impossible. He’s reinvented the private eye novel.”
The Denver Post
