Description

Praise for The Good Detective

"The Good Detective by John McMahon is a promising police procedural debut novel with all the ingredients of a fast-paced thriller."--Mystery Tribune

"This unusually accomplished debut is the first in a projected series; with Marsh still having demons to deal with, the table is set for much more compelling, character-centric stories to come. Crime-fiction fans are advised to get in at the start."--Booklist (starred review)

"Southern gothic mingles with modern noir..."--Kirkus Reviews

"[John McMahon is] a talented writer with a good sense of place, and readers are sure to look forward to Marsh's next outing."--Publishers Weekly

"First fiction is dangerous business: many aspire, few succeed. Not so with John McMahon's debut, The Good Detective. Tight, fast and addictive, I blistered this book in a single day. It has everything top-drawer crime fiction demands: murder, conflict, and a damaged, compelling hero, all delivered in prose so crisp and clean McMahon presents like an old pro. If he had a second novel on the shelves, I'd be reading it right now."--John Hart, New York Times bestselling author of The Hush

"In The Good Detective McMahon skillfully blends the old and the new and weaves it into spun gold."--Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of Robert B. Parker's Colorblind

"The Good Detective is a debut with all of the ingredients: snappy procedural details, a sharp sense of place in the Deep South, and relentless momentum. John McMahon's outstanding first in the series introduces a sardonic and sympathetic lead in P.T. Marsh, and launches both McMahon and Marsh into what promises to be a great career in crime fiction."--Glen Erik Hamilton, author of Hard Cold Winter and Past Crimes
