"Anita Paddock is the newest and strongest voice in true
crime writing. Closing Time makes you feel as if you are
there, seeing what happened, and feeling the terror and sorrow of
those felled by these brutal crimes."
- Marla Cantrell, Editor of Do South Magazine and an Arkansas Art Council Fellow
"Anita Paddock delivers again. Closing Time reveals an unvarnished truth that will, at times, leave her readers breathless. Those familiar with her work will quickly conclude that Closing Time is a worthy successor to her previous best seller, Blind Rage. Get ready for some late nights because you won't be able to put this one down."
- Greg Shepard, author of Earthstains, the story of Matt and George Kimes who came of age in the Roaring Twenties with a string of sensational bank robberies.
Anita has done it again. Somehow she is able to create tension and suspense even when the outcome is already known. She has a way of making each character as familiar as the guy next door, be they ordinary people or despicable creeps! Truman Capote, even though you can't roll over, maybe you should step aside because a new "true crime" star is here!
- John McFerran
Superb writing! I absolutely enjoyed reading it. The author truly made the people in the book come to life. Can't wait to read more books by Anita Paddock. I highly recommend this book!
