Praise for A Fire in the Night:

“Highly proficient.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Captivating from start to finish . . . great for fans of Baldacci and Patterson.”
Manhattan Book Review

“I don’t know how Swann did it — he’s written a mesmerizing book that’s literary fiction, a spy novel, and a relentless thriller all in one.”
—Lee Goldberg, #1 New York Times bestselling author

A Fire in the Night is a searing story about the ties that bind and how sometimes they begin to strangle us. Christopher Swann has created a nuanced yet thrilling novel of family, grief and ultimately hope. Not to be missed.” 
—S.A. Cosby, best selling author of Blacktop Wasteland and Razorblade Tears

“A rural noir that’s loaded with surprises, Christopher Swann’s A FIRE IN THE NIGHT blends the moral grays of the best espionage stories with a taut, relentless mystery steeped in setting. Character-driven and memorable, A FIRE IN THE NIGHT is Swann’s best yet.”
—Alex Segura, acclaimed author of Star Wars Poe Dameron: Free Fall, Blackout and Miami Midnight

“Swann really delivers with his latest, a solid murder mystery starring Nick, a grieving former professor with a secret past and an orphaned niece who shows up on his doorstep. Tense and action-packed, with an ending that will make your heart stop, A Fire in the Night is a nail-biter with a Southern twang.”
—Kimberly Belle, internationally bestselling author of Dear Wife and Stranger in the Lake

Praise for Never Turn Back:
“An extraordinarily compulsive read…Swann’s writing packs a huge emotional wallop and delivers a breathtaking ending.”
Booklist starred review
“Fans of literary crime fiction will want to take a look at this thoughtful outing.”
Publishers Weekly
“A wild, compelling ride from beginning to end.”
Kirkus Reviews
“Thriller readers will enjoy and look forward to more from Swann, especially 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
“I loved this twisty, sexy, fast-paced thriller.”
—Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author

“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

 “An intelligent and layered mystery that had me burning through the pages.”
—Brian Panowich, award-winning author of Bull Mountain

“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
