Reviews For Andy Straka

Andy Straka: On Cancer, Vulnerability and Action Heroes 5.0

Straka’s storytelling is as strong as talons, and once he’s got you in his grip, he never lets go.

Rick Riordan

Andy Straka: On Cancer, Vulnerability and Action Heroes 5.0

Frank Pavlicek is a breath of fresh air in the field of private eye fiction. Witty, sharp, and flesh-and-blood real.

Jeffery Deaver

A book this good, and this original, helps remind me why I started reading mysteries in the first place...
