Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“His stories not only entertain, but touch the mind and heart.” Dean Koontz
“Crime fiction at its toughest: booze, guns, knives, chases, aberrant psychology, blackmail, icepick murders, femmes fatales, sinister psychos, brutish thugs, drunks, nymphos, homicide dicks, and a generous helping of sweat.” Matthew R. Bradley from the Introduction to Noir
“Matheson is the master of paranoia—pitting a single man against unknown horrors and examining his every slow twist in the wind.” San Jose Mercury News
“In delivering high-tension suspense, Matheson displays an uncanny knack for showing the physical toll fear and desperation take on his characters, grounding them in grim, sweaty-palmed reality.” Booklist
