Reviews

"Kent continues to reinvent and subvert traditional noir expectations with the larger-than-life, damaged, courageous Betty. . . . Action-driven mystery anchored by dynamic, deep characters."--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
"A gripping, powerfully human procedural"--Booklist
"Gripping . . . Briskly paced, The Burn barely allows the reader to take a breath as believable twists careen throughout."--Oline Cogdill, Associated Press
"Terrific... Kent's own ability to avoid predictable outcomes and keep the reader on edge bodes well for future installments in this series."--Chicago Tribune
PRAISE FOR THE DIME:
"Exciting [and] moving... Grisly but likable."--The Wall Street Journal
"Deeply satisfying . . . [Betty is] an obsessive, borderline unstable, fascinating, Brooklyn-born seeker of truth. . . . With Betty Rhyzyk, Kathleen Kent brings those mean streets to life as excitingly as anybody has in years."--The Washington Post
"Harsh, violent reality is the daily fare for Dallas police detective Betty Rhyzyk, the narrator of Kathleen Kent's satisfying The Burn."-- The Wall Street Journal
"A suspenseful mystery right up until the end --- and an effective exploration of trauma and its ongoing repercussions, not only for survivors but also for those who care about, and for, them."--BookReporter
"Kent's Dallas setting is so meticulously drawn that one can practically smell the streets, the sour odor of the street people. All of her characters are memorable, and not a single one, even the minor characters, is less than three dimensional."--New York Journal of Books
