"A chilling, atmospheric crime procedural." - Kirkus Reviews
"Skyward is an intricate, closely observed story of the inner lives of some dozen people, none of them untroubled. It's a dark tale, a tale of considerable suspense and some violence--and yet, for this reader at least, its most singular trait is a large compassion and sympathy. Philip David Alexander has constructed a kind of latter-day Winesburg, Ohio." - Castle Freeman Jr., author of The Devil in the Valley and Go With Me
"Philip David Alexander's Skyward is the police novel I've been waiting for: dark, accessible, full of heart, gutsy and gripping, close to the bone. I read it fast, thrumming along, carried by the incredible momentum and a great mingling of voices. Echoes of Jim Thompson's The Criminal and Walter Hill's The Driver, but menacing and absorbing in new ways. Put this book at the top of your to-read list now." - William Boyle, author of Gravesend and Death Don't Have No Mercy
