"In American Red, David Marlett expertly creates a time and place so real that you can't help but be taken in and enthralled by this most American of stories: the legal thriller.

It's amazing storytelling."--Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"This is a big book filled with big characters and I very much recommend it. If you enjoy historical fiction this is for you, if you enjoy crime fiction this is for you, if you enjoy legal thrillers this is for you. If none of those genres is your cup of tea but you appreciate good writing regardless of the genre then I will recommend this to you."--My Reading Life
