"Imagine my delight at this wonderful little book, this riotous cross-section of John Irving and Jim Thompson. These characters breathe the same air other people breathe, they work jobs like real people do. An addictive read from its first page, Small Town Sins pays the reader's attention back with love. A crime book that kept surprising me with its warmth and vigor page after page--it's a delight, well-told and deeply felt."
--John Darnielle, author of Devil House

"Original, bittersweet, twisting, and triumphant. Small Town Sins takes a thrilling and deeply emotive look at cause and effect, at the decisions we make and the lessons we disregard. I adored it."
--Chris Whitaker, author of We Begin at the End

"A tour de force of lives on the edge. A page-turner that I couldn't put down. When you think left, it hits you right; when you think it's safe, the ice starts to crack. A seriously good noir thriller."
--Willy Vlautin, author of Lean on Pete

"Small Town Sins is full of surprises and moves like a bullet train. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Fans of A Simple Plan and other rural noirs are sure to savor this dark and twisted thriller. I'm excited to read whatever Ken Jaworowski writes next."
--Jason Rekulak, author of Hidden Pictures

"A stunning novel. Think Peter Dexter blended with James Sallis. It is that good and beautifully written. The sort of novel where you want to underline whole passages. I'm going to be pressing this book on those I care about. It restored my joy in the mystery genre."
--Ken Bruen, author of The Guards
