REVIEWS

Owen Laukkanen's fast-paced, no frills style is brisk, blunt and fuelled entirely by adrenaline
New York Times

Laukkanen lays claim to be the new Elmore Leonard with another funny, fast-paced and original thriller.
The Sun

Another terrific and original romp... Laukkanen delivers the goods with great pace and verve... Big idea, great story, another huge read from the man of the moment.Jon Wise
Daily Sport

Once more, Laukkanen scores one of the thrillers of the year. It will be difficult to top Kill Fee, but one more, I expect he will
National Post

Enthralling... Kill Fee works well as an in-depth police procedural and an insightful look at amorality and greed. Laukkanen employs the same strengths of brisk plotting and incisive character studies that he established in his first two novels.
