"The toughest dark 'hero' in crime fiction since Parker."--Denver Post
"HARDCASE is very tough, with a high body count...Simmons writes better than most, and his ex-PI. Joe Kurtz, who tries to hold onto a semblance of ethics while working for a semi-retired Mafia don, is an interesting character. ..there are some nifty Chandleresque twists and some nicely done upstate New York scene layering."--Boston Globe
"An exceptional tale...there's no letdown from the explosive start to hell-for-leather finish in this hard-as-nails detective story. Watch out, bad guys! Kurtz is here!Enthusiastically recommended."--Library Journal
[Simmons'] narrative is all sinewy blood and gristle...hard to beat for a pulp-fiction beach read."--Publishers Weekly
In his twenty years of publication, Dan Simmons has won more than 50 major American and international awards for his fiction. Mr. Simmons lives in Colorado.
