Reviews

"A flammable techno-thriller with the kind of force that knocks out windows."-The New York Times Book Review"Packs an explosive punch. Though the pace of the book moves like a quick-burning fuse, Crais still takes the time in Demolition Angel to sketch out some memorable characters: Starkey, haunted and hollow-eyed, covering up her pain with a Bogart-tough demeanor; and John Michael Fowles (aka Mr. Red), a sociopath who gets all sorts of information from the Internet without breaking a sweat. . . . Crais keeps things wound so tight that readers will be getting paper cuts in their rush to finish this one."-The Denver Post"The final pages can hardly be turned fast enough, and the climactic violence is tempered masterfully with a sweet irony."-The San Diego Union-Tribune A flammable techno-thriller with the kind of force that knocks out windows.
