Reviews For The Soak

The Soak 5.0

Richard Stark fans will relish heistmeister Hobbs, an older Parker in everything but name, as he struggles to pull off one last job in this well-plotted tale of robbery, murder, and revenge. The swift-moving action builds to a satisfying denouement.

Publishers Weekly

The Soak 5.0

THE SOAK is tense, fast moving, intricately plotted and layered with the moral ambiguity of the best crime fiction.

Garry Disher, multiple Ned Kelly Award winning author of the Wyatt and Chain of Evidence

The Soak 5.0

An extraordinarily dark, twisting noir novel with crackling dialogue and action, featuring an aging anti-hero who should be checking out the Early Bird specials at a local restaurant, but instead is on a blood-soaked mission of revenge. Highly recommended… and you’ll never look at an AARP card the same way again.

Brendan DuBois, Edgar award-winning author of the Lewis Cole mystery series

The Soak 5.0

A thoroughly engaging anatomy-of-a-heist style crime novel. Hobbs is wonderfully gritty and irascible, an old school pro, and yet charming in his own hard-boiled way.

Victor Gischler, Edgar Award-nominated and Anthony Award-winning author of GUN MONKEYS

The Soak 5.0

Fast and brutal, gripping and ingenious, this tale of an analogue thief in a digital age had me locked in from page one.

Stephen Gallagher, author of "The Bedlam Detective"
