“The breakneck pace of the narrative, and the world Holm creates,
make for a thrillingly brutal ride.”

SFX Magazine

Praise and Reviews:

“A grim, imaginative take on the detective yarn.”
Jason Heller, NPR

“Smart, funny and umassuming… Our world is a better place with Sam Thornton in it.”
Raging Bibiolholism

“Sam is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. While he carries with him the attitude of a blockbuster movie action star, he’s also a tragic character at heart. In my opinion, this is Holm’s finest work yet.”
Every Read Thing

“Big concepts in a book filled with big ideas and big action.”

“This is the creepiest, pulse-poundingest installment of The Collector series yet. I don’t know if Holm is cooking up more Collector books, but whatever he writes, I’m going to read it. The Collector series is highly recommended.”
-Stephen D, at Unsquare Dance

“Holm weaves the ideas he wants to explore with his story like a master craftsman. He uses the subtext of hard boiled novels, making the text through urban fantasy a starting point to venture in less charted territory. It would be no surprise if there is a class discussion about him someday.”
Mystery People
