"David Terrenoire, a first-rate writer, would have made a first-rate investigator. His research is impeccable, and his understanding of the way things work, from Washington to the dark places of the world, is impressive. But it's his insight into the quirks of human nature that makes this, his debut novel, such a tight run of suspenseful, and surprisingly funny, storytelling."
- John Douglas, author of Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit
"David Terrenoire's Beneath a Panamanian Moon is a first-class debut-funny, clever, and gripping."
- Brian McGrory, author of The Nominee and The Incumbent
"Very well-done indeed...Sophisticated, witty, suspenseful, and perceptive…Readers will leave the novel primed for another John Harper adventure." - Booklist
"[H]umorous debut thriller spiced with exciting commando action…The Canal Zone years after the blitz to grab Noriega is a superb setting, and the solid supporting cast includes the deadly and efficient Phil "Mad Dog" Ramirez, who could play Hawk to Harper's Spenser for many entertaining novels to come."
