"An engaging and exciting novel, beautifully realized. It's a pleasure to see a book where the characters are more than just cogs in a plot machine." -- Don Winslow, author of The Death and LIfe of Bobby Z
"For readers who love walking tightwires and that feeling that at any moment a fall is imminent, here's a taut story of vengeance gone awry, and characters who stumble over shaky moral territory into some kind of redemption. Every Trace is a provocative read and an auspicious debut for author Gregg Main." -- Perri O'Shaughnessy
"Greg Main's debut thriller blurs the line between good and evil. This is a wonderfully sneaky read." -- Leslie Glass, author of Judging Time
"Highly recommended...tension mounts quickly as Main springs numerous plot twists in a way that belies his status as a first novelist." -- Booklist
"The mystery of Main's tale lies in the revelation of ...how apparently affectionate spouses can share bed, bathroom, tax returns, even the microwave over the years without revealing their innermost obsessions. Keeps one reading." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
"a clever suspenser about revenge gone awry... The cast converges violently in a remote cabin near Santa Fe...There's shooting, death, and in the smoke-clearing aftermath, a neat resolution...with some nicely engineered surprises to tingle the spine." -- Kirkus Reviews
Gregg Main's EVERY TRACE is a mixture -- parts of it are brilliant, and the rest is even better. An emotional white-knuckle ride that ends up in a place you won't predict. -- Lee Child, author of KILLING FLOOR
Gregg Main's first novel, EVERY TRACE is a smart, canny and engaging debut. The tone is spare and the story is intriguing. In this tale of a seemingly average marriage torn asunder by a murder of decades past, Main makes us pull for people who are only just begiing to realize how much they love and need each other. His portrait of the old criminal, Franklin Walker, is knowing and heartfelt. EVERY TRACE takes us into a world of doomed hopes and unrealized blessings. It's a worthy book from a very promising new writer. -- T. Jefferson Parker, author of SUMMER OF FEAR
