Reviews

"Pronzini's book, with its smooth writing, crisp dialogue, deft characterization and subtly ambiguous story line, puts the lie to the facile distinction between 'literary' and genre fiction. Crime may figure in the tale, but if this is 'just a crime novel, ' then so is Crime and Punishment." "Philadelphia Inquirer on THE CRIMES OF JORDAN WISE"

"After 66 novels, including the distinguished Nameless Detective series, Pronzini's energy seems undiminished and his cool intelligence as appealing as ever." "Kirkus Reviews on THE CRIMES OF JORDAN WISE""
