Reviews For Tom Ardies

Pandemic 5.0

Tom Ardies is the nearest thing to Ian Fleming and Mickey Spillane that we have.

Ottawa Journal

Pandemic 5.0

Written in a lean, wryly humorous style, the fourth Tommy Donahoo novel is short on pages but long on action. The biggest mystery is why Tom Ardies hasn't won the Edgar Award yet.

Detroit Free Press

Pandemic 5.0

Trolley has a knack for writing taut thrillers. He brings the action right down to the last, breathless second, and he does it with considerable skill, humor and style.

New York Times

Pandemic 5.0

Trolley is like a noir voice out of the past, fast talking, sardonic, generating a great deal of suspense.
