"Let Him Go is as commanding as its title: you will be immediately gripped by the narrow-eyed, big-hearted pursuit of a child in danger. This is a literary thriller of the highest order on par with Daniel Woodrell's Winter's Bone an unrelenting quest through an unforgiving landscape and deadly family web." Benjamin Percy, author of Red Moon and The Wilding
"I can’t remember the last time I rooted for two characters as much as I did the Blackledges. Wait, I doit was the father and son in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Watson’s book is more realistic and relatable, and perhaps even more powerful. It’s superbly done."
James Crossley, Mercer Island Books
