Praise For The James Deans

"The biggest mysteries in our genre are why Reed Coleman isn't already huge, and why Moe Prager isn't already an icon. Both are to me. Read this book and you'll find you agree." -- Lee Child, best-selling author of Worth Dying For

"The twists and reversals are expertly done, and Moe's voice, which mixes Jewish intellectual with cop smarts, is company worth keeping." -- Houston Chronicle

"Coleman may be one of the mystery genre's best-kept secrets." --Sun-Sentinel
