Praise for POTTER'S FIELD "Brings the series to a satisfying close...gripping action sequences...Hart has a fine command of wiseguy comments, a modern take on the noir crime idiom, and enough vulnerability in his protagonist to make the reader sorry to see the last of Ash." --Publishers Weekly "(A) fast-paced, adventure-packed read. Hart knows his Staten Island setting well and makes strong use of it." --Library Journal "An unusual and quite affecting crime novel...we agree with a fellow PI who describes our hero as 'a good kid trying to do the right thing.'" --Booklist "I bulleted through the novel in one sitting...The music of Bronx River Parkway, the Die Hard movies, Casablanca, and pizza, lots of delicious New York pizza, lend Potter's Field its McKennaesque feel, as does peripatetic Ash's take-home realization: 'Doesn't matter where you live. It only matters how.'" --Daneet Steffans, Seattle Review of Books "Stunning...If you're not reading Rob Hart's stuff, you should be. A gripping thriller that wraps up one of the genre's most underrated series." --The Real Book Spy
Praise for Rob Hart's Ash McKenna series
"THE WOMAN FROM PRAGUE keeps you hooked with its fast-paced story set in the treacheries and terrors of our post-9/11 world." --James Grady, author of SIX DAYS OF THE CONDOR
"One of the best books of the summer...The Woman From Prague has great pace, a fascinating relationship between the central characters, and superb atmosphere." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"A hot summer read." --The Boston Globe on The Woman From Prague
"A spy thriller in all the genre's old school glory." --Booklist on The Woman From Prague
"One of the best mysteries of the year." --Boston Globe on South Village
"Excellent." --Seattle Review of Books on South Village
"Terrifically written, and populated with rich characters, this book had me by the throat from page one." --Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author of ONE KICK and HEARTSICK on CITY OF ROSE
"Brilliant...CITY OF ROSE, Rob Hart's latest Ash McKenna novel, is as sharp as the devil himself. Hart is a master storyteller who can turn a city into just as vital as any flesh and blood character." --Brian Panowich, author of BULL MOUNTAIN
"Well executed and strikes an appealing balance, rough without being sadistic, gritty without being sordid. ...an engaging read...characterized by Hart's quick and witty turns of phrase." --Kirkus Reviews
"The New York of NEW YORKED is a place of heartbreak and murder that I highly recommend you visit." --Josh Bazell, author of BEAT THE REAPER
"Outstanding...I loved NEW YORKED. It may be the most quixotic hard-boiled I've read in ages. With clever nods to Chandler and lots of muscular metaphors, Hart has written an achingly lovely farewell to one man's past." --Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
"(Hart is) a hard-boiled crime novelist in the vein of greats like Dashiell Hammett and James M. Cain, not to mention modern masters like Lawrence Block and Dennis Lehane." --Staten Island Advance
