New praise for An Ordinary Criminal by Michael Van Rooy


A great review of An Ordinary Decent Criminal by the late Michael Van Rooy appears on Murder by the Book's Mystery Book Blog:

"An Ordinary Decent Criminal is a very clever, wry story of an unusual man. It's also a manual in how-to do many things criminal. (Don't try this at home!) I haven't heard such a compelling, unexpected voice since Josh Bazell's "Beat the Reaper." Van Rooy keeps the reader off balance; it is impossible to guess where he will take his story next. The author manages to craft a story that's always moving but that lauds the quiet moments in his protagonist's life. The story is often violent and tough, but has a graceful presence."
