Reviews

"A funny, craftily malevolent first novel, an ice-pick-sharp crime story that sustains its film noir energy all the way to an outrageous whammy of an ending."

-- "New York Times"

"A deliciously nasty little book...Phillips writes in a spare, straightforward prose style that's perfectly suited for the Midwestern setting. It also allows for flashes of wicked wit."

-- "San Francisco Chronicle"

"[An] astonishing debut novel from a writer who manages to put a funny, modernist spin on a piece of our noir past..."

-- "Chicago Tribune "

"A pitch-perfect foray into pulp fiction, witty and bitter, with an ironic conclusion that makes a neat package."

-- "Library Journal"

"The narrator is one of the best, Grover Gardner, whose 13 Earphones Awards attest to his abilities in interpreting character. Never mind that his voice is also one of the most pleasant to listen to, something only God could have bestowed."

-- "Land Line"
