2 starred reviews!
“Facing the inevitable decline of old age, a feisty detective is forced to assess his past…Should you, will you, and how can you fight the reaper are questions Friedman handles with amazing grace. Screamingly funny and achingly sad.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Buck Schatz makes a welcome return in Edgar finalist Friedman’s thoughtful third mystery featuring the retired Jewish cop (after 2014’s DON’T EVER LOOK BACK) …John Grisham fans looking for more nuance and deeper characterizations will be rewarded.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE K TEAM by David Rosenfelt
“This strong series launch from Edgar finalist Rosenfelt, a spin-off from the author’s Andy Carpenter series (DACHSHUND THROUGH THE SNOW, etc.), stars Carpenter’s wife, Laurie Collins, who has left the Paterson, N.J., PD to form the K Team, which includes a former police colleague of Laurie’s and his canine partner…This is a promising start to what’s likely to be a long-running series.”–Publishers Weekly
