Reviews
"A neat, Hitchcockian thriller. . . . Let's hope there are real FBI agents as brilliant as Romilia Chacón."--Washington Post [for A Venom Beneath the Skin]
"Scintillating, densely plotted. . . . Villatoro creates a compelling, dramatic balance."--Publisher's Weekly (starred review) [for Minos]
"Rich in history and myth, rich in setting, rich in character. This book reminded me of The Da Vinci Code. It is a pleasure from start to finish."--T. Jefferson Parker, Edgar Award-winning author of A Thousand Steps [for Minos]
"Charles Dickens, or more recently Joyce Carol Oates and Margaret Atwood, have used the crime novel to eloquently express themselves. . . . Add to that chorus of writers the name . . . Marcos McPeek Villatoro."--Los Angeles Times Book Review [for Home Killings]
