Left Coast Crime Rosebud Award,  BEST DEBUT MYSTERY
Silver Falchion Award, BEST FIRST NOVEL: Traditional
2015 Edgar® Award Finalist,  BEST FIRST NOVEL
"Eskens's elegant but chilly prose, like winter in the blood, is well suited to this fiercely told morality tale ...which is sure to send all of us wretched sinners straight to hell."
- The New York Times Book Review

"This noirish twisty tale will appeal to those who enjoy Jeff Lindsay's Dexter series, Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, and Pryor's own Sherlockian international thriller series starring Hugo Marston."

"Hugo Marston has joined my list of heroes I love to read about, joining the likes of Lee Child's Jack Reacher and Patrick Lee's Travis Chase. These are the guys who have all the brawn they need but they use their minds to win the day."
- Buried Under Books

"An I Love Lucy-meets-Agatha Christie adventure. Compelling"
-RT Book Reviews

"A humorously delightful historical mystery.... This suspenseful, smart and funny book is a crack debut."
-Shelf Awareness for Readers STARRED REVIEW
"McAlpine has skillfully melded the mood of rage at Japanese treachery and bits of Hammett-era noir with the sensibilities of metafiction and postmodernism into a truly original crime novel."
- Booklist

"Exactly what a police procedural should be: an intriguing case in an unusual setting, original yet logical, familiar and yet one learns things about the world along the way.... you are well-advised to purchase Gun Street Girl for any mystery aficionado."
-San Francisco Book Review
"A fascinating mystery and-even more engaging for this reader-a believable, complicated hero. Thomas Lynch is a flawed, sympathetic man struggling with the benefits and risks of coming to terms with himself. I was rooting for him the whole way."
- Stephen McCauley, author of The Object of My Affection

"A taut tale of mystery and suspense that is at once a reminder of how a sleuth got the job done in the era before CSI and an antidote to nostalgia. Stone Cold Dead is just too cool to miss."
- The Big Thrill

"A dark, complex mystery with well-developed characters deeply rooted in their small-town rural setting. Larry D. Sweazy gives mystery readers a rich, satisfying read."
- Kat Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of Against the Wind

"Highly recommended for psychological thriller groupies, especially those who walk on the literary side of the genre and favor books like Tana French's Faithful Place and Cornelia Read's Madeline Dare series."

"Do you think you know what your own mother might do? The Survivors is an up-close-and-personal mystery-the best suspense I've read this year. It will haunt you."
- Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Outlander series
