"Nick Drake is wonderfully complex character and I was invested in this story from the very first page. His backstory in Vietnam is beautifully (and horrifically) described. It was all very visceral and real, layered and emotional. I'm a huge fan of westerns and this felt very much like a contemporary western married with a mystery. I love the setting and time period. Eastern Oregon in 1968. It was a time of incredible turmoil and change and the story vividly reflects all of it. The dialogue crackles with wit and honesty and the action scenes are beautifully written and really exciting. If you're looking for a smart, thrilling, beautifully written pager-turner, look no further. I can't wait for book two." -- Haris Orkin, Goodreads"The Sorrow Hand is a well-crafted story with believable three-dimensional characters, vivid, realistically drawn settings, plenty of red herrings and plot twists, and a troubled, deeply flawed, but sympathetic protagonist. The story is tightly woven, with very little wasted motion or breath. The author paints the wilds of Oregon with vibrant images and his characters with emotional veracity and depth. The story quickly captures the reader's attention and imagination, and doesn't let go." -- Gino Cox, Goodreads
