Critical praise for John Lutz's Alo Nudger series

"Lutz's plotting here has a stark, unusual, genuinely disturbing curve to it—making this another Nudgeresque blend of strong action, lean atmosphere, and downbeat personality."
Kirkus (Dancer's Debt)

"...[Lutz] deserves high marks for another intriguing glimpse into the unusual world of Alo Nudger, a uniquely warm and thoroughly disheveled detective."
Booklist (Dancer's Debt)

"Lutz's economy of language and well-timed suspense work very well in this tale... A taut mystery recommended for all active collections."
Booklist (Ride the Lightning)

"Lutz does an excellent job here... keeping the story complicated and varied but never losing the reader in red herrings or distracting minutiae."
Publishers Weekly (Nightlines)

"... a superb thriller that artfully leaves the reader unprepared for its surprising, shattering climax."
Publishers Weekly (Nightlines)

"The brilliant language and technique of Nightlines serves his [Lutz's] commitment to people as life's greatest incentive and reward. Here's plenty of reason to read his fine new book."
St. Louis Globe-Democrat (Nightlines)

"...Lutz builds a tense, witty tale that he persuades the reader to believe."
Publishers Weekly (Right to Sing the Blues)
