From the Back Cover:

"The Hundredth Man has a crackerjack plot and wonderfully original rapid-fire prose. Jack Kerley is a writer to watch. And read."
--David Baldacci, New York Times bestselling author of Split Second

"Kerley's first novel is explosively good, a nuanced look at the dark underbelly of contemporary society that reads like a cross between Thomas Harris and F. Scott Fitzgerald."
--The Sun (Baltimore)

"[The Hundredth Man is a] narrative locomotive of a first novel. Kerley jacks up the tension effectively with nicely placed jumps between Carson's narration and the tortured thoughts of the killer, building up to an all-stops-out climax. ... Powerful. ... Compelling. ... Kerley's plot is a treasure chest of interlocked pieces."
--Booklist (starred review)

"The Hundredth Man is a distinctive thriller that starts out with a most unusual bang and leads leading junior police detective Carson Ryder and his veteran partner to investigate what's behind the sudden surge of corpses on their Mobile, Alabama, beat."
--Publishers Weekly

"This is a pitch-perfect psychological thriller."
--Library Journal (starred review)

"A serial killer novel with a difference: smartly written, densely plotted... The whole story is told in prose as inventive ... as a fight to the death between embattled virtue and monstrous evil ought to be."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
