Praise for The Man in the Crooked Hat

"Mr. Dolan is a skillful writer. His well-balanced story is full of tension, sorrow, suspense and a lingering sense of uncertainty. . . . In the course of his gripping tale, Mr. Dolan makes even his strangest and most vile characters understandable--not to excuse but to explain them, with appropriate measures of pity and terror."--The Wall Street Journal

"Clever . . . 'The Man in the Crooked Hat' expertly splinters into several investigations and delivers parallel stories of Jack's quest and Michael's rebuilding of his life. Each plot tendril blissfully leads to the next as Dolan illustrates intelligent plotting. A hint of humor and a flair for the ironic also elevate the story."--Associated Press

"A multi-layered, suspenseful mystery-thriller with nuanced characters guaranteed to propel the plot and hold any reader's interest."--Huffington Post

"An unpredictable mystery with an off-kilter plot and distinctive characters . . . with deft dialogue propelling its plot."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Relentless . . . Superior prose, plotting, and characterization put Dolan in the top rank of crime novelists."--Publishers Weekly (starred)

Praise for Harry Dolan:

"The twists and turns flow effortlessly. . . . Dolan's writing is excellent, and readers can look forward to his future efforts the way millions of us look forward to the ever more superb novels of Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Jonathan Kellerman and Sue Grafton. A new master mystery writer emerges."--ForbesMagazine

"Dolan has a talent for ingenious, serpentine plots. . . . [He] is an inventive, offbeat writer."--The Washington Post

"Dolan is one of America's best new crime writers; if you haven't discovered him, you're in for a real treat."--Lansing State Journal
