WHEN SHE WAS BAD by Jonathan Nasaw
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 1, 2007

"Nasaw's overriding interest is an impressive body count, but even nine corpses can't guarantee thrills."

TWENTY-SEVEN BONES by Jonathan Nasaw
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 1, 2004

"Unsparingly gruesome in places. Still, it's a colorful cast, sharply observed and wittily presented: Pender in love is almost as much fun as Pender the sleuth. By far, Nasaw's third is his best yet (The Girls He Adored, 2001, etc.)."
Feckless psychopaths. Can those two words really be mentioned in the same breath? Read full book review >
THE GIRLS HE ADORED by Jonathan Nasaw
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 2001

"Relentlessly sadistic. Among the vampires of his earlier work (Shadows, 1997, etc.), Nasaw's done better."
An unsavory thriller about a man with multiple personalities, most of them unpleasant. Read full book review >
SHADOWS by Jonathan Nasaw
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 13, 1997

"Not as original as The World on Blood, but swift-moving, with fitfully interesting characters."
