"R.J. Ellory is a uniquely gifted, passionate, and powerful
writer." -Alan Furst
"R.J. Ellory's remarkable talent for probing the unknown establishes him as the master of the genre. The perfect author to read late into the night." -Clive Cussler
"R.J. Ellory will quickly rank with the best crime writers working today." -Otto Penzler
"In this bleak examination of murder and hope, Ellory's herrings are as red and sticky as caramelized apples, more dead-ends than Manhattan riverside real estate. Fans of Ellory's "A Quiet Belief in Angels" will repeatedly take the wrong road, when trying to identify the Anniversary Man. Readers who expect the amazing success of that novel to be replicated by the Brit who sets his plots in the U.S. as though he intends to recolonize for the Queen will be thrilled with this epic crime fiction novel. Written as though by a native New Yorker, this novel needs to be read twice --- once for vice-grip-like details, again for nectar from the consummate wordsmith. So real is Ellory's writing that the lines between journalism and crime fiction blur. Though Ellory's standalone crime thrillers grab readers by the throat and don't let go until the last page, Detective Irving has the makings of Connelly's Harry Bosch on steroids, sure to be a repeat character --- and made with cinematic success into a blockbuster movie." - Bookreporter.com
"This is one of those police-procedural gems that come along once in a blue moon...And what a story it is!...This could be the one to put [Ellory's] name in lights in this country. Expect his name to be on every crime-fiction fan's lips in short order." -- "Booklist" (Starred Review)
"Ellory's gripping thriller should appeal to lovers of procedurals and may also draw readers of true crime, as it deals with many actual serial killings" -- "Library Journal"

""The Anniversary Man" is just Ellory's second release here in the States (he has seven titles available in the UK) and he's quickly cementing himself as one of my favorites in the crime genre. His stories are dark and disturbing, his plots keep you guessing, and they never end quite like you think they will." -- BookBitch.com
