Reviews

"Superlative....Hall steadily ratchets the suspense while seamlessly combining elements of Florida's natural history with elements of the state's early development and overdevelopment." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred) on "Silencer""A damn good mystery." --"Booklist" on "Dead Last""Hall's ability to evoke the deep, primeval essence of the Bay and Glades--the water, air, wildlife, feral excitement--are unmatched, and the life and death struggle that ensues is heightened and set apart by a heavy ambivalence...With his unerring sense of place, and a frighteningly sure grasp of the dark side, nobody cooks it up like Hall." --"Miami"" Herald"


"Hall is one of those rare thriller writers who can build character as he ratchets tension, who can do no-holds-barred action scenes with panache and, in the midst of bedlam, never lose sight of nuance. All those skills are on display here, as Hall assembles a full-bodied supporting cast whose stories hold our interest as much as Thorn's attempt to save his son without helping to bring about a South Florida version of Chernobyl. A fine thriller on every level." --"Booklist "on "Going Dark

"As ever, Hall is in colorful command of his South Florida setting... Compared to other mystery writers, he plays things refreshingly low key, but he's always in control, thriving on the setup as much as the payoff ...with its nicely observed characters and lively dialogue--and terrific sex scenes--it keeps readers turning the pages." --"Kirkus"

"Hall's latest novel, titled "Going Dark "proves he's one of the best genre writers working today." --Alan Cheuse, "All Things Considered""Among the best [of Florida writers] is James W. Hall. . . . As the story spins forward, Hall builds the suspense and violence to what could literally be a breaking point for South Florida. Along the way, he treats the reader to gorgeous prose about the state's natural bounty, advances his development of Thorn, supplies multiple shocks and proves that not all of Florida's reptiles slither on their bellies." "--Richmond Times-Dispatch
