Thomas builds suspense and character almost casually, once again proving himself a master of the crime thriller." - Publishers Weekly"A new Ross Thomas turns me back into a reader who forgets what day it is." - The Cincinnati Enquirer"An entertaining book that can be pleasantly devoured in a sitting or returned to in satisfied anticipation." - Los Angeles Times"We already know how witty Mr. Thomas can be about entrepreneurial greed and political chicanery... But Durango is a revelation. ... Give us a road map and a passport." - The New York Times"There is no one like Ross Thomas...a master of the arabesques of storytelling." - The Washington Post
