Praise for the books by Colin Campbell:

"A cop with a sharp eye, keen mind, and a lion's heart." -Reed Farrel Coleman
"Campbell writes smart, rollercoaster tales with unstoppable forward momentum and thrilling authenticity." -Nick Petrie
"Grim and gritty and packed with action." -Kirkus Review
"The pages fly like the bullets, fistfights and one-liners that make this one of my favourite books of the year. Top stuff!" -Matt Hilton
"An excellent story well told. A mixture of The Choirboys meets Harry Bosch." -Michael Jecks
"Sets up immediately and maintains a breakneck pace throughout. Its smart structure and unrelenting suspense will please Lee Child fans." -Library Journal Review
