MysteryPeople chooses Blade of Dishonor for their top 5

MysteryPeople chose Blade of Dishonor in their top 5 debut crime novels of the year.

I’m in fine company alongside Todd Robinson, whose The Hard Bounce was one of my favorite reads this year, Anonymous-9’s over the top and unique Hard Bite, Daniel B. O’Shea’s Chicago crime thriller Penance, and Terry Shames’s small-town Texas murder A Killing at Cotton Hill.


Blade of Dishonor was a blast to write, and I’m very glad it’s just as much of a blast to read. It is now available for the Nook as well as Kindle and Trade Paperback. Signed copies are on hand at Watchung Booksellers and The Mysterious Bookshop, and Texans can head to BookPeople in Austin for their fix.

You can read more about it on the Blade of Dishonor page–blurbs from Andrew Vachss, Wayne Dundee, Charlie Stella and Josh Stallings, and great reviews from Crimespree, MysteryPeople, Criminal Element, and more.
