Praise for James W. Ziskin

"[Bombay Monsoon is] intense, atmospheric and intelligent--a superior and rewarding thriller that I'm glad I read." --Lee Child, #1 New York Times best-selling author

"[Bombay Monsoon is] a terrific, dense, exciting thriller from James W. Ziskin, with a vibe pitched somewhere between Graham Greene's The Quiet American and Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance. I loved it." --Adrian McKinty, New York Times best-selling author

"A stunning novel! Bombay Monsoon, captivating from the very first pages, draws us into an exotic world of intrigue and passion, offering up a whipsawing plot and a truly memorable cast. There's more than a little Graham Greene here, along with a dash of le Carré, though this story is pure Ziskin, told in his unique and resonant voice." --Jeffery Deaver, New York Times best-selling author

* "[In No Stone Unturned, ] Ziskin's . . . smart and aggressive protagonist has real personality. The author's touch for academic politics coupled with his clear observations of the early years of the 1960s is superb. Don't miss this series." --Library Journal (Starred Review)

"With vivid detail and spot-on historical accuracy, Bombay Monsoon brings to life the India of the mid-1970s--while at the same time spinning a mysterious, sometimes dark, and always compelling story of courage, love, and betrayal. Danny Jacobs is flawed, complex and, like all great journalists, dedicated to learning the truth no matter what the cost. Written in Ziskin's elegant, sparkling style, Bombay Monsoon is a triumph." --Robert Rotstein, New York Times best-selling author

"Ziskin uses the atmosphere of monsoon season and period details to create a lush, vividly imagined world, while the political situation creates palpable tension throughout. Fans of classic political thrillers will be satisfied." --Publishers Weekly

"Written with a deep affection for and knowledge of India, its people, its past, its politics, and its culture, Ziskin's latest continuously shocks and excites while also transporting readers to a very specific time and place. The author thoughtfully examines issues of race, color, and class without distracting from the intricate, bombshell-laden plot. This one's a wild ride from cover to cover." --Mystery Scene Magazine

"Smoothly written and tightly plotted, Bombay Monsoon might be the start of a whole new series for the highly decorated James W. Ziskin." --New York Journal of Books

"A mystery that puts an inventive twist on Boccaccio's Decameron, Turn to Stone takes the reader on a richly-imagined and entertaining journey to Florence and the Tuscan countryside in 1963. And the engaging, indomitable Ellie Stone, who holds her liquor but never her tongue, is the perfect traveling companion." --Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author

"Ziskin's writing displays a remarkable command of words, building them into a complex and convincing set and cast of characters." --Suspense Magazine
