Review:

Hurwitz's carefully interwoven plot lines and taut writingas well as his pulsing descriptions of Los Angelesmake for a deeply satisfying read, and the ending, revealed with masterful simplicity, shows the complex desires that make each of us capable of murder. A performance worthy of applause.
"Kirkus" (Starred Review)
Hurwitzs insights about L.A. life sound knowing and are often ruefully funny, e.g., L.A., where a porn star runs for governor and an action figure wins. Crime fans looking for something different will love this one.
"Booklist"
With The Crime Writer, Gregg Hurwitz has taken a quantum leap forward in the realm of American suspense literature. A thrilling, mind-bending journey, it is also deeply human and beautifully written. Youll turn the final page with profound regret.
Dennis Lehane
"The Crime Writer" is the must read crime novel of the year. Brilliantly rendered with a hip intelligence and fierce originality, this book is a stunner.Gregg Hurwitz may well have created a brand-name franchiseand deservedly so.
Robert Crais
Itd be so simple to say that "THE CRIME WRITER" toys and pokes and jabs with the genre. And of course it does. But by merging author and hero, Hurwitz sharpens a brand-new edge in his voice. An elegant, engaging, and wonderfully human book.
