Reviews

He's genre dextrous, moving fleetly between westerns, mysteries, thrillers, horror, sci-fi, literary fiction, and nonfiction, and doing it all extremely well.--Publishers Weekly
"When funky books need to be written, Joe R. Lansdale writes them. . . . The plot is pure James M. Cain's The Postman Always Rings Twice, but steeped in hillbilly noir."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"The prolific Mr. Lansdale...draws on the spirit and themes of James M. Cain in this stand-alone book, which works clever variations on such Cain classics as The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity.
--Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
Praise for More Better Deals
Lansdale really makes this used car purr.--Booklist (starred review)
Highly enjoyable . . . Populated with an admirable array of laughable miscreants, this droll, savage novel is vintage Lansdale. The author's storytelling powers remain as strong as ever.--Publishers Weekly
" [A] down-and-dirty riff on Double Indemnity, a provocative new variation on James M. Cain's noir classic...an enjoyably cynical cruise down the back roads to perdition."--Lisa Henricksson, Airmail
Southern crime legend Joe Lansdale channels his best James M. Cain world vision...Readers can expect to be transported in the usual Lansdale fashion, as nobody does those East Texas period details quite like Lansdale, who always delivers with a finely-crafted, engaging, compulsive crime story in his home terrain.--Dwyer Murphy, CrimeReads
"Lansdale nails the storyline, nails the suspense, seriously nails the dialogue and has created yet another character worthy of a series."--BookPage
"Daniel... is a winning mixture of curiosity, hesitancy, and gumption."--Sarah Weinman, New York Times Book Review
