"Marvin Brown?s debut novel COVET is a lean, complex jigsaw of a thriller, a fast-paced, contemporary parable on the psychology of race, the nature of identity and the brutal powers of memory. You will not soon forget Russell Washington and Garrett Kale, nor the very talented Marvin Brown. I was hooked on the very first page."
- Richard Montanari, author of THE VIOLET HOUR and KISS OF EVIL
"A snappy 140-pager that reads like a dispatch from a coffee shop just outside of Hell."
- The Glass Eye
"Welcome to a fascinating, chilling, tightly written psychological thriller that breaks many of the rules and explores new territory in the black man's alienation in America. Brown's slim book is long on depth, ingenuity, and substance. But the book's unusual style may be the most intriguing part of all. The author's nonlinear approach is reminiscent of Quentin Tarantino's groundbreaking movie Pulp Fiction."

"A ?psychological drama? that reads like a cross between Goethe?s Faust and Kafka?s The Metamorphosis. An interesting, imaginative first novel."
- Ohioana Quarterly
