"Entertaining...Zandri keeps the reader guessing all the way to the neat ending. James M. Cain fans will find plenty to like."â??Publishers WeeklyPraise for the novels of Vincent Zandri “The tension as the firestorm approaches is palpable, the ending spectacular.” â??Booklist on The Detonator "Zandri’s prose reads as if he was typing with one hand and holding a stopwatch with the other. THE DETONATOR moves at warp speed. There is no good place to stop, so plan on setting aside a few hours to read it all in one gulp."â??Bookreporter “(A) dynamite standalone from Thriller Award–winner Zandri” â??Publishers Weekly on The Detonator "A riveting story..oh, what a story it is: grisly, surprising, and page-turningly suspenseful. A terrific old-school thriller." â??Booklist (starred review) on Orchard Grove "Captures readers’ attention from the opening scene...creates a story that, much like the Forresters' obsession with Lana, is hard to tear away from once a reader is hooked." â??BookPage on Orchard Grove "ORCHARD GROVE is a classic slice of raw pulp noir, with all the traditional juicy ingredients: a dangerous woman, a loutish husband,and a sap to come between them." â??William Landay, New York Times bestselling author of DEFENDING JACOB “ORCHARD GROVE is tightly crafted, smart, disturbing, elegantly complex thriller. It's utterly riveting. I dare you to start it and not keep reading.” â??M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author of THE REINCARNATIONIST "Zandri is a heck of a storyteller. You won’t want to stop reading just to see what happens next, and what doesn’t. ORCHARD GROVE is wild. It has elements of DOUBLE INDEMNITY and Body Heat, and things you’ve never encountered before...it’s doubtful you’ll find a more entertaining ride." â??Bookreporter "Riveting...(a) chilling tale of obsessive love." â??Publishers Weekly "There is a great deal of tension in this book, keeping the reader engaged and moving quickly through the pages...Zandri does his best work in creating tension and moving the plot forward at a blistering pace." â??Reviewing The Evidence "Gritty, fast-paced, lyrical and haunting." â??Harlan Coben on THE INNOCENT "Zandri demonstrates an uncanny knack for exposition, introducing new characters and narrative possibilities with the confidence of an old pro...Zandri does a superb job creating interlocking puzzle pieces." â??New York Post "Readers will be held captive by prose that pounds as steadily as an elevated pulse...Vincent Zandri nails readers attention." â??Boston Herald "The action never wanes." â??Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinal
