ON BORROWED TIME

“An absolutely irresistible hook… No one who picks up this greased-lightning account will rest till it’s finished.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Outstanding...Anyone who enjoyed Dennis Lehane’s Shutter Island will love this thriller.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Excellent. All will marvel at the way Rosenfelt builds suspense.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

DOWN TO THE WIRE 

“Dynamite…Sly humor, breathless pacing, and terrific plot twists keep the pages spinning toward the showdown.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter novels are known for their breezy storytelling and humor...This one eschews humor to focus on the actions of ordinary people faced with extraordinary trials. It also employs a whiplash plot turn…an engaging suspense tale.” —Booklist

“A terrific plot and a gripping narrative.” —The Toronto Sun

“I am raving about this book…a page-turning thriller.”—Deadly Pleasure

DON'T TELL A SOUL

“Stellar… Rosenfelt keeps the plot hopping and popping as he reveals a complex frame-up of major proportions with profound political ramifications both terrifying and enlightening.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This fast-paced and brightly written tale spins along…Don’t Tell a Soul is a humdinger.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“High-voltage entertainment from an author who plots and writes with verve and wit…Rosenfelt ratchets up tension with the precision of a skilled auto mechanic wielding a torque wrench.”
Booklist (starred)

“Rosenfelt has earned his crime-novelist pedigree.”—Entertainment Weekly

“He delivers a fast, inventive stand-alone thriller you’ll never put down.”—Kirkus Reviews
