PRAISE FOR LOREN D. ESTLEMAN

“An engaging look at World War II Detroit and the men who were left to safeguard it while others fought overseas. Estleman’s marvelous collection showcases his knowledge of this gutsy city, both past and present, that is guaranteed to please crime noir fans as well as history buffs.”
—Library Journal

“Loren Estleman is the Stravinsky of hard-boiled prose–he never hits a wrong note.”
—John Lescroart, author of The First Law: A Novel

“…a true professional, a writer of a sort increasingly rare…so given to his work as to spontaneously combust to genius.”
—The Boston Globe

“Loren D. Estleman is a crazy prolific writer, in a league with Anthony Trollope and Joyce Carol Oates … .The words don’t just pour out of Estleman’s typewriters … no, they roar out, a relentless typhoon of words — words that are even more remarkable for their consistently high quality than their staggering quantity. Newly published is Desperate Detroit: And Stories of Other Dire Places, a collection that will solidify Estleman’s stature with his hardcore fans while serving as an ideal introduction for uninitiated readers. The book is a sumptuous smorgasbord.”
—The Millions
