"A harrowing debut thriller." –The Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Wonderfully complex plot, sardonic humor and memorable characters. . . . Lawson has a great ability to shade character and evoke meaningful description as economically as possible. . . . In two words: more, please.” –The Baltimore Sun
“Lawson shows a knack for sketching realistic characters, even minor ones, in deft and nuanced strokes. Lawson is droll, writes sharp dialogue, and . . . know[s] his way around Beltway politicking.” –The Seattle Times
“Thrilling enough to demand a sequel.” –Daily News
