Released: Aug. 4, 2009

"Bleak through and through, of course, but it's one of those stories begging to be told, and Abel puts you there."

COLD STEEL RAIN by Kenneth Abel
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 1, 2000

"A familiar story made fresh by the way Abel takes apart crooked Louisiana politics (is there any other kind?) and makes you care about every last one of the quick and the dead."
