Reviews

"Ingenious ... every moment [is] perfectly motivated ... more believable than the truth. CROOKED works as gleeful satire, as wacky alternate history, and as a thriller, but what really shines is the character study at its center."--Neil Hollands, Library Journal (starred review)
"Crooked confirms and details the extremely esoteric and occult presence we always suspected lay at the heart of the Nixon administration. It's got spies, and political intrigue, and a sitting President spilling his own blood onto a pentagram hidden beneath the Oval Office rug, which is to say there are few of my buttons this book does not push."--John Darnielle, Author of Wolf in White Van
"At once wildly imaginative and deeply intimate, CROOKED is a demonically fun political thriller. The brilliance of Austin Grossman is in making big stories personal, even when the big story is super-powered presidents and intercontinental necromantic missiles."--Max Barry, author of Lexicon
"In telling the secret story of Richard Nixon, Austin Grossman draws back the curtain on American history. Senator Joe McCarthy should have been much, much more frightened. Once I started reading Crooked, I couldn't put it down. But be warned, even as you devour this book, it will devour you."--Daniel O'Malley, author of The Rook
