"One of the year's best."-Rocky Mountain News
"Mr. Harrison...has produced a thriller that seems to want to be equal parts of Raymond Chandler, William Styron and Tom Wolfe...These corollary aspirations generate some of the greatest pleasures in Mr. Harrison's novel, so that the same narrative that impresses us with its top-to-bottom knowledge of New York City fauna is also illuminating about the quiet acts of omission that irrevocably damage a marriage."-Entertainment Weekly
"With the narrative drive of a hurtling subway express, Harrison...plunges readers into a scary subterranean world in which the only comfort comes from the neon flashes of his prose."--People
"Marvelous...[Harrison's] prose brims with the anguish and joy, the guilt and regret of recklessness, of hundred's of the city's voices."-Publishers Weekly

-David Foster Wallace
"A great, roaring story of power, lust, greed, and a very human folly that characterizes our preposterous millennium-told with compassion, intelligence, and striking human insight."
"Beautifully written and flawlessly structured. Manhattan Nocturne is compulsive reading."
"Something new is in the air; Colin Harrison has captured the subtle changes in the whole moral compass of America in this spellbinding thriller. Set deep in the heart of New York City's darkness, Manhattan Nocturne introduces one of the great femme fatales in modern literature. This is the best novel I've read in a long time."-Thom Jones
"Vivid...suspenseful...disturbing...Manhattan Nocturne is a fine novel, as notable for its richness of descriptions as its gripping suspense."-BookPage
"A brooding, erotic mystery thriller. Harrison offers up wonderful, stirring meditations of family, sex, love, and death."-Detroit Free Press
