"A short fast trip down the road to hell with prose as hard as a hammer. If your reading diet requires something tough and bloody, here it is. Grab it."
-Bill Crider, Award-winning author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series
"I read as a writer and believe me, an entire class could be profitably taught using just this novel. The fictive dream is established immediately and there's no departure point where the reader can leave. Matthew Louis has crafted one of the best, most interesting, best-paced and plotted novels I've read in a long, long time, and I just hope he keeps cranking 'em out as fast as he can."
-Les Edgerton, author of The Rapist, The Bitch and the forthcoming, The Genuine, Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping
"A first-rate, fly-through-the-pages freakshow that left me longing for a bit longer with [Matthew Louis's] hardboiled heroes."
-Tony Black, author of His Father's Son and The Last Tiger
A novel of unforgettable characters, surprising twists and satisfying payoff, The Wrong Man will stay with you long after you've read the final sentence.
Sam Schuler is starting a new family, trying to begin a respectable life, and trying to extricate himself from the seedy people he once knew.
But when his former best friend involves him in a petty drug theft, a local street gang is stirred to action and Sam finds himself the target of harassment from the gang's leader.
When the situation escalates from threats to violence to the worst transgression imaginable, Sam's reality is warped beyond recognition. Rules of conduct are forgotten and laws lose meaning as the young man attempts to salvage his sanity, his male pride and his family-to-be.
