THE BIG SCAM by Paul Lindsay
Released: Sept. 1, 2005

"Despite some wonderful episodes—a dog who plays blackjack, an ex-con who makes his own license plates—the plotting is too scattershot to hit the target in a story that might better have been titled Scams R Us."
Beneath all the feints and double-crosses, Lindsay's sixth (Traps, 2002, etc.) is a tale of trouble among two competing crews. Read full book review >
TRAPS by Paul Lindsay
Released: Oct. 8, 2002

"Beneath the expertly handled action-film conventions, Lindsay rings virtuoso changes on the kinds of traps the best and worst men set for each other and themselves."
After the sprawling pleasures of international intrigue (The Führer's Reserve, 2000), Lindsay's back doing what he does best: putting the FBI under the gun. Read full book review >
Released: May 9, 2000

"'And you thought art history was going to be boring,' Fallon tells Sivia Roth. It's not, but this time, despite all the conscientiously planted surprises, it might be just a wee bit predictable."
Now that the obliging Swiss are turning over Holocaust victims' bank accounts, the FBI's Taz Fallon is free to worry about the last round of spoils from the war: a priceless cache of looted paintings hidden away by Hermann Göring. Read full book review >
FREEDOM TO KILL by Paul Lindsay
Released: July 7, 1997

"Expert but synthetic, then, with a much better part for the brilliant, wigged-out Freedom Killer (who doesn't half live up to his billing) than for our hero."
Detroit's own FBI cowboy Mike Devlin, who never walks away from a loaded gun, is banished to D.C. to shuffle records and get his blood pressure down—only to find himself staring down a monomaniacal terrorist. Read full book review >
GENTKILL by Paul Lindsay
Released: Sept. 1, 1995

"Once again, Lindsay shows that he can do it allcat-and- mouse plotting, deliciously nasty Bureau byplay, sharp domestic vignettes, dozens of sparkling anecdoteswith as much panache as his beleaguered, irresistible hero. (First printing of 50,000; author tour)"
Two more crackerjack cases for bad-boy FBI agent Mike Devlin (Witness to the Truth, 1992), whose insurance company probably worries more about his hidebound bosses than about the bomber or agent-killer he's up against. Read full book review >
Released: Oct. 1, 1992

"With street truths like that, and action that accelerates to a stirring climax, Lindsay delivers a crime thriller to savor—and one that might sell very well indeed. (Film rights sold to Hollywood Pictures, a division of Disney.)"
Reports have it that Lindsay, an FBI agent, is in hot water with his superiors for this first novel—and no wonder: In his derivative yet atmospheric and acridly entertaining debut, he depicts a Bureau smothering in bureaucracy and mediocrity, but still home to a courageous few—who make cases as often as not by breaking laws as well as rules.
