Reviews

Praise for Dead of Winter

"Bebop and NorteΓ±o, cool jazz and salsa, reading Dead of Winter was like listening to all the good music. This latest by Stephen Mack Jones is an astounding composition, an ode to a diverse city known for big engines and bigger hearts. Welcome back, August Snow!"
--Rachel Howzell Hall, author of And Now She's Gone

"August Snow is a terrific character; rough and tumble, undaunted and implacably tenacious, his wit so sharp it'll make you bleed. In Stephen Mack Jones's new book, Dead of Winter, Snow protects his neighborhood from rapacious one percenters, Mack Jones skillfully weaving relevance into a blue streak, bone-breaking story. Highly, highly recommended."
--Joe Ide, author of the IQ Series

"Like Walter Mosley and Joe Ide, Jones builds a raucous and endearing cast of characters from his inner-city setting, fusing neighborhood camaraderie with streetwise know-how and head-banging action. This is a fine thriller in the grand hard-boiled tradition, but it's also a sensitive, multifaceted portrait of race in America."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"Gritty . . . Snow remains a distinctive lead capable of sustaining a long series."
--Publishers Weekly
