I’ve been blown away by all the nice things people have had to say about my first crime novel, Silent City. Even happier to say we’ve got a few more great advance blurbs to share.
Codorus Press has been great about messaging out some of the wonderful plugs the book’s gotten, but I figured it’d be nice to have the new ones all in one place. For me, the best part of seeing these blurbs involves having writers you admire – and read as a fan! – say they like your work. Sara Gran is not only a great friend and mentor in the wacky world of publishing, but a writer I genuinely admire – I’ll buy and read anything she puts out. Same goes for Adam Christopher and Kevin Flynn, the latter a real standout true crime writer. If you haven’t read the Claire DeWitt books, Empire State or Notes on a Killing, do yourself a favor and check them out.
Oh yeah, blurbs. Here’s what they’ve got to say about Silent City, which comes out Oct. 29 (you can pre-order the book on Amazon now, though!):
“Silent City screams off the page! Someone lock Alex Segura in a room until he churns out more tales of Pete Fernandez’s Miami! As someone once wrote, ‘Please sir, I want more.'” – Kevin Flynn, author of NOTES ON A KILLING, LEGALLY DEAD and OUR LITTLE SECRET
“Silent City is a noir page-turner I couldn’t put down, a race through the Miami tourists don’t see. I loved the book, and can’t wait for the next one. Alex Segura is a writer to watch.” – Sara Gran, bestselling author of CLAIRE DEWITT AND THE BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY and CLAIRE DEWITT AND THE CITY OF THE DEAD
“Silent City is a page-turner right from the get-go, fast and furious and with plenty of bite.” – Adam Christopher, bestselling author of EMPIRE STATE and THE BURNING DARK
If you’ve already managed to snag a copy of Silent City, or plan on reading it – give the book some love on Goodreads, too, if you can?
More updates as they come in. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support throughout this process!
