Editorial Reviews

"He's writing about the outcasts and fringe dwellers, and doing so with grace and beauty...This thriller keeps the tension building from the opening scene through the heart-wrenching conclusion...This is a novel full of thrills, grit and often sadness - a novel that should be at the top of any thriller or crime fan's reading list this summer. Lange's the real deal, whatever label you choose for him."-The Omaha World-Herald
