Editorial Reviews

“Those readers who value intelligence, fine writing and action will find it all in this outstanding novel.” Publishers Weekly
“Love, sex, money, power, and violence in an irresistibly melancholy noir package in which redemption is the motive but hell beckons at every turn.”  Booklist (starred review)
The Last Goodbye is the best thing a thriller can be: suspenseful, intelligent and well-written. Reed Arvin is the real deal.” Harlan Corban, author of No second Chance
“I was moved by this gritty, romantic thriller. It's a heartbreaking love song to modern Atlanta its tragedies, its promises, its failure, its dreams. The Last Goodbye is magnolias and humidity, yet it's also crime and redemption. I've never met Reed Arvin, but I'd be proud to claim him as kin.” Margaret Maron, author of Last Lessons of Summer
“A rare achievement Reed Arvin has crafted a first-rate thriller that works both as an airplane read and as a serious novel. The Last Goodbye has depth, original characters and plot twists that truly surprise.” Phillip Margolin, author of The Ties That Bind
