"THE RULES OF DREAMING: A mind-bending marriage of ambitious literary theory and classic murder mystery.... In this intricately plotted novel, Hartman... spins the familiar trappings of gothic mystery together with a fresh postmodern sensibility, producing a story that's as rich and satisfying as it is difficult to categorize.... As Hartman skillfully blurs the lines between fiction and reality, the book becomes a profound meditation on art, identity and their messy spheres of influence. An exciting, original take on the literary mystery genre."

"Briskly told and well-drawn, this legal thriller (THE RULES OF ACTION) does what many courtroom-based novels and television shows do not: It stays true to the actual practice of trial law… A fast-paced tale of justice in action and a remarkably accurate portrait of a trial lawyer’s daily grind… Prospective law students are frequently encouraged to read law-student memoirs or legal hornbooks, but for a realistic view of litigation and a great deal more action, they’d do well to add this legal thriller to their reading list."
