Praise for My Brother's Keeper
"Bristling with suspense. . . . This riveting tale with its surprising twists and enormously satisfying ending will make you a Hardacker fan."--Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author of The Assassins

"Vaughn C. Hardacker writes lean, evocative prose that perfectly captures both the hard-eyed cops, PIs and criminals that populate his world, and the forests, lakes and gritty New England towns where they circle and struggle against each other. If Raymond Chandler and Paul Doiron had a kid, it would be My Brother's Keeper. A must-read."--Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times-bestselling author

Hardacker's mysteries and thrillers are hard-hitting, gritty stories of murder and mayhem, heavy with graphic violence and constant plot twists."--Bushnell on Books

Praise for Vaughn C. Hardacker's Black Orchid

"In this hard-hitting crime novel . . . Hardacker keeps the action flowing all the way to the violent climax." --Publishers Weekly

"Fast paced and action packed, Black Orchid takes the Hollywood private eye novel in a bold and exciting new direction. You won't want to put it down." --Paul Doiron, author of The Precipice

Praise for Vaughn C. Hardacker's Sniper

"Born in Southie and forged by the Marine Corps, there's no way Boston police detective Mike Houston is going to sit still for a sniper shooting up his city, never mind going after the people he loves. A tense and exciting duel that turns the pages for you."--Stephen D. Rogers, author of Shot to Death

"From its initial horrific crime to its hold-your-breath climax, Sniper is a full-throttle thriller. Hardacker has written a page-turner that feels authentic both technically and in its very human cast of characters. Fans of Stephen Hunter's Bob Lee Swagger won't want to miss this outstanding debut!"--Steve Ulfelder, Edgar-nominated author of Shotgun Lullaby

"Tense, taut, and genuinely chilling. Hardacker instills this disturbingly sinister tale of vengeance and terror with true Boston heart and authenticity." --Hank Phillippi Ryan, award-winning author of The Wrong Girl

"Hardacker handles the action and the characters well and ties things together in a suspenseful manner." --Kirkus Reviews
