"The Hanging Tree is a terrific story, a dark-hearted mystery entwined in a bullet-fast thriller. Gruley is one of the good ones." --John Sandford
"The Hanging Tree is an engrossing, sure-footed mystery that manages to be both suspenseful and deeply touching." --Gillian Flynn, Edgar nominee and New York Times Bestselling Author
"Haunting, observant, and filled with complex characters that will remind you just how much you don't trust your neighbors. The Hanging Tree will pry its way into your imagination. And it won't leave." --Brad Meltzer, New York Times bestselling author
"As with 'Starvation Lake' before it, 'The Hanging Tree' is an exceptionally well-written novel by an author who has mastered the conventions of his genre. Discriminating readers will be anxiously awaiting the third book in this promising series." --Associated Press
"Gruley captures the hardscrabble life of a recession-rocked small town and the deep interrelations of the inhabitants while delivering complex, intriguing characters caught up in trouble. His take on contemporary journalism is Evelyn Waugh-worthy. Another winner." --Booklist
"Absorbing. . . Gruley vividly evokes the frigid Michigan winters and the even chillier atmosphere of an insular community determined to keep its secrets." --Publishers Weekly
"[The Hanging Tree] has it all--suspense, mystery, romance, detection, clear-eyed hometown nostalgia, professional dangers along with the other kind." --Kirkus Reviews
