Review:

“[Alan] Sklar as well as Jeff Gurner, Pete Larkin, and Oliver Wyman appropriately channel tough-guy personas, reminiscent of characters played by Humphrey Bogart and Robert Mitchum.”
       —Booklist (Joseph Wambaugh The Bookwatch)

“There is gold in every set. . . . Hitting like a Tommy gun blast, these pulse-pounding collections will leave mystery hounds panting for the next installment.”
       —Library Journal [starred review] (Michael Kardos)

“Any fan of crime stories and radio shows will find these a compelling listen, spiced with a variety of accomplished narrators.”
      —The Bookwatch
