Falls the Shadow by William Lashner
Falls the Shadow
"Victor Carl is a provocative and entertaining guide."
"[In] the upper reaches of the hardboiled universe, along with Pelecanos, Lehane, and a very few others."
"If Scott Turow and Pat Conroy somehow had a son who grew up Jewish in Philadelphia, you might have a writer like William Lashner."
"Grandly entertaining…smart and funny…Lashner is as impressive as anyone writing legal thrillers today."
