‘Another new novel by Rodney Hall is like a pitcher of freshly mixed margaritas to a confirmed alcoholic. It’s like: “Go away and just let me alone with this book!” You just have to wonder about Rodney Hall. He’s more like a dervish than a writer. It is Hall’s gift for taut rhythms, predicaments, mystery and a sense of danger that make the writing in his novels so captivating.’

- Carolyn See,The Washington Post
