Pike (Switchblade) (Paperback)

"This is what noir is, what it can be when it stops playing niceblunt force drama stripped down to the bone, then made to dance across the page." Stephen Graham Jones, author, The Trial of Nolan Dugatti
"The words don't just tell a story here, they scream, bleed, and burst into flames. . . . This one’s going to haunt me for quite some time." Nathan Singer, author, A Prayer for Dawn
"A perfect stride [Whitmer's] first time out of the blocks." Ward Churchill, author and political activist
"Pike is the stuff of country songs, murder ballads and oh, opera. It goes for the throat and then it gets serious. Pick it up, open the pages and watch out, you’re liable to end up with a busted face." Barnes and Noble Mystery Blog
