Reviews
Praise for Scott Phillips

"Phillips's juicy vernacular is perfect for Bill's louche narrative voice, and his easy, flowing style suits the loose morality and freewheeling spirit of a hotheaded young nation."
--New York Times Book Review

"Taut and vicious . . . The essence of noir."
--Los Angeles Times

"Phillips is dark, dangerous, and important . . . Crime fiction at its best."
--Michael Connelly

"The unparalleled master of the noir anti-hero."
--Megan Abbott

"Phillips's skillful use of real historical events will resonate with fans of George Macdonald Fraser's Flashman series."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Phillips mixes real events, period turns of phrase, a noirish sensibility, and a cast of murderous women, madmen, drunks, grifters, and fools into a wildly entertaining, perhaps sui generis, slumgullion that might well be closer to reality than readers would imagine."
--Booklist
