Praise for Magic City:
"Hall continues to explore the ever-intriguing psychodynamics of his unconventional hero, but he also adds a new dimension to the series with the fascinating look at Miami in the 1960s... Another outstanding chapter in one of the genre's most consistently first-rate series."
--Booklist (starred review)
Praise for Forests of the Night:
"Moves like an arrow--lean and swift--toward its amazing target. James W. Hall is at the top of his form; he's a wonder to watch."
--Reynolds Price, bestselling author of A Serious Way of Wondering and Roxanna Slade: A Novel
"A suspenseful, sharply detailed blend of history, family drama, and thriller, Forests of the Night cuts a wide literary swath, and does it with élan and passion." --Russell Banks, bestselling author of Affliction
"Compelling, with actions scenes that bristle with visceral intensity . . . Nearly everyone has real depth, and the author's appreciation for history and its reverberations adds further complexity."
"Hall's Thorn novels continue to set the standard for Floridas noir, but his stand-alone thrillers are equally distinguished. [Forests of the Night] is no exception."
