Review:

Praise for Deep Winter
“Enthralling and suspenseful, like a Michael Connelly novel, but more elegantly written.” – Esquire

“A great, fast-paced read. More depth, reality and heart than Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, while maintaining as much suspense.” --Graham (Goodreads)

This is a harsh, brutal novel, as bleak as its wintertime setting. It’s also so brilliantly done, so artfully underwritten with not a word wasted, that readers may hate themselves for letting this grim narrative trap them in its coils.” Booklist

“Gailey writes visually, rendering the characters and action both vivid and alive.” – Kirkus

“Set in rural Pennsylvania, Samuel W. Gailey’s Deep Winter is a beautiful and brutal debut. Put Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men in a blender with Scott Smith’s classic crime novel A Simple Plan, then watch as Gailey hits the switch and everything in this world spins dangerously out of hand. A wonderful fast-paced read.” –Urban Waite, author of The Terror of Living and The Carrion Birds

Deep Winter is a fast-paced thriller tense enough to give you paper cuts from turning the pages so quickly.” –Joe R. Lansdale, author of The Thicket

Deep Winter captures the every bit of the darkness of a Selby Jr, novel and relocates it in rural Pennsylvania …. I will put [it] in the hit category.... [It] is an exciting, fast paced novel with plenty to offer in the way of suspense. Highly recommended for crime novel fans and those who like a darker, real world story.” --Evilcyclist blog

“An atmospheric, highly charged mystery. Readers will be caught up in the story, the characters and the approaching storm that will follow. Highly recommended.” --Rosemary (NetGalley)

“A clever and compelling character driven novel about the events leading up to and the aftermath of a brutal murder. Told from several points of view over a short period of time, this was a fascinating old school type read with a wonderful noir feel to it…. Mr. Gailey has created a tense, claustrophobic atmosphere within the tightly woven and fast moving plot – and given us an authentic soundbite of small town life….Unpredictable and astute, I would recommend this for lovers of crime fiction, especially if they like it with a classic feel rather than a more modern one.” --Liz Loves Books blog

“Mr. Gailey has created a tense, claustrophobic atmosphere within the tightly woven and fast moving plot… Nicely executed…Unpredictable and astute, I would recommend this for lovers of Crime Fiction.” --Liz (Goodreads)

“It's a rare mystery suspense that keeps one on the edge of their seats but also moves one to tears.…the book felt like a classic and was a story of redemption.” --Charlotte (Goodreads)

“The book is affecting…I ended up with a tear in my eye due to a sense of goodness as it ended.” --Sharon (Goodreads)

“Readers looking for fast paced suspense will enjoy Deep Winter.” --Sandra (Goodreads)
