?Over the years, TO DIE IN CALIFORNIA has developed a legendary reputation among writers, with good reason. Newton Thornburg delivers the thriller goods while reaching for, and achieving, something higher. Long after the last page is turned, CALIFORNIA haunts like a troubling dream? George P. Pelecanos "The dark side of the American dream, etched with pathos and a deep understanding of the fallibility of human nature. Newton Thornburg is one of the best hidden secrets in the crime writing field, and his revival is much overdue." Maxim Jakubowski ?One of the saddest books I?ve ever read. Read it and weep like I did? Mark Timlin, Independent on Sunday ?A remarkable psychological thriller about grief, anger and revenge, which grips throughout and remains in the memory? Susanna Yager, Telegraph ?An unforgettable study of grief and obsession? Allan Jones, Uncut
