"The best private eye novel--heck, maybe the best novel--I've read this year." --Harlan Coben

"The best mysteries are about the past coming up out of the ground and grabbing the present by the throat. . . . Blood is the Sky fills that bill and then some. This is his best yet." --Michael Connelly

"Steve Hamilton writes tough, passionate novels with a strong emphasis on heart and humanity. His latest flat-out smokes. This is crime writing at its very best." --George Pelecanos

"Easily Steve Hamilton's best novel so far. . . . Everything is here--his trademark sense of place, vivid, resonant characters, and a plot that will break your heart." --Lee Child

"With a keen sense of place, memorable characters and relentless action, Hamilton pens some of the best crime novels out there. If you're looking for a stimulating reading experience, Blood Is the Sky by Steve Hamilton is it." --Fresh Fiction
