“Before You Accuse Me” is the best mystery I have read this year—and the best one I read last year.
With more twists and turns than the roller derby world it penetrates, The Whammer Jammers is a mixmaster of city cops, brave women and betrayal–for love and dirty money. A page-turner that pays big dividends at the bitter end.
Liskow’s story and characters will haunt you.
In Blood on the Tracks, Steve Liskow has crafted a rock and roll mystery that finds all the right notes and keeps cooking to the very end. He’s got a real hit on his hands.
Steve Liskow gives us a gritty, believable detective in Chris Guthrie and an intelligent, absorbing mystery, set against the seedy backdrop of the Detroit music business. And the real kicker is while tipping its hat to the great broke down detectives of modern era mystery, it stays true to itself. Blood on the Tracks is a solid, solid read.
