Praise for "Blood of the Oak"
"Another complexly plotted historical mystery written in a baroque style highly suggestive of the period and unblinking in its portrayal of American history's dark lessons." "Kirkus"
Praise for "Eye of the Raven"
Few writers can combine history and mystery as well as Edgar-winner Pattison . . . Evocative language, tight plotting, and memorable characters make this a standout. "Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
The pleasures of Eliot Pattison s books, and "Eye of the Raven" is another smashing example, are threefold: high adventure in perilous landscapes, a hero stubbornly seeking the truth, and the haunting mysteries of ancient cultures. Otto Penzler, editor of "The Vampire Archives"
