REVIEWS

Praise for Revenge

"Hugh Holton was a master storyteller. How fitting that this final novel about Chicago cop Larry Cole should be one of Hugh's very best books."
--Ed Gorman, author of Sleeping Dogs
 
"Hugh Holton toiled both in the trenches and on the hill of command in the war against crime; everything he writes can be taken as gospel. But the true power of his prose comes from a combination of pragmatism and compassion that will keep his books in print many years after his splashier contemporaries are forgotten."
--Loren D. Estleman, author of  Nicotine Kiss
 
"Hugh Holton's last novel, Revenge is a damned fine read. I enjoyed it immensely. Revenge struck me on three levels - viscerally because of the blazing action, total enjoyment because of his storytelling skills, and poignancy because of Hugh's untimely demise."
--David Hagberg, author of Dance with the Dragon
 
"Anyone who's spent any time around big-city cops knows that Hugh Holton's writing is the real thing. Impeccable authenticity combines with great storytelling and blood-real characters to make every one of the author's books a terrific read. Superb!"
--Ralph Peters, author of Wars of Blood and Faith
