Praise for Headstone

"Hard hitting ... a remarkable series."--Publishers Weekly

"Headstone is an excellent addition to the Jack Taylor series."--Philadelphia Inquirer

"Ken Bruen is brilliant. While HEADSTONE is the stuff of nightmares, it is also the stuff of redemption, even at great cost. You will feel wrung out after reading this one, but all the gladder for it."--Bookreporter

"Headstone is one of the year's best reading pleasures."--Crime Fiction Dossier

"Bruen is threatening to become a mass cult figure in the U.S. as well as a critical favorite."--Allen Barra, The Atlantic

"A nonstop rampage of intrigue, mayhem, lunacy and dark-dark-dark humor."--Shelf Awareness

"Bruen's voice is unmistakable: finely chiseled paragraphs that more closely resemble verse than prose. . . . Bleaker than David Goodis, colder than Derek Raymond, and funnier and more violent than Richard Stark, Ken Bruen is among the most original and innovative noir voices of the last two decades."--Los Angeles Review of Books

"A welcome entry. B+."--Avid Mystery Reader
