Praise for Patrick Hoffman:

"Criminal fools populate the drug-selling networks from San Francisco to Bangkok to Miami in Patrick Hoffman's astonishing, violent novel . . . filled with sharply drawn characters . . . A mind-bending, attention-demanding narrative as full of shocks and surprises as an LSD party."--Wall Street Journal, on Every Man a Menace

"Every Man a Menace is everything you could want in a thriller--lightning pace, dead-on dialogue, and a twisting, high-torque plot. But, most of all, this novel is smart and authentic, a welcome jolt at a time when so much fiction reads like it rolled off an assembly line."--Carl Hiaasen, on Every Man a Menace

"Subtle characterization, tricky narrative switchbacks . . . vivid, moody prose . . . closer to Denis Johnson than to Elmore Leonard."--Paris Review Daily, on Every Man a Menace

"[Every Man a Menace] is distinguished by its virtuoso set pieces . . . a nasty tour de force . . . Hoffman's follow-up to The White Van is another strong and original addition to the crime fiction genre."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review), on Every Man a Menace

"Patrick Hoffman writes vivid and colourful prose, in a style that has Hollywood movie written all over it . . . An exciting read."--Toronto Star, on Every Man a Menace

"[An] exhilarating crime debut . . . Hoffman gives his story a stunner of a twist, where roles are reversed, lies become truths, and it all gives way to the most perfect hustle of all . . . Hoffman's crime plot doesn't just thicken, it boils with surprise after surprise and suspense as tight as a noose . . . He cinematically captures a seamy San Francisco . . . the hard-boiled prose glints like a broken mirror . . . wildly satisfying."--San Francisco Chronicle, on The White Van

"[A] gritty, exhilarating . . . Everything in his unpredictable fiction has the dissonant clink of alarming truth . . . The White Van, with its quick and scary turns, provides a hell of a ride; the action never stops--even after the final page."--Wall Street Journal, on The White Van
