Testimonials

“Much like George Pelecanos, Hyde knows all the nooks and crannies, all the dusty alleyways and grotty street corners, that hover behind the capital city's shiny facade . . . a fresh new voice and another crime author who recognizes that a carefully evoked setting can steal the show.”
Booklist
“Patrick Hyde’s exciting first mystery novel realistically portrays the Washington, D.C. legal system, but that’s no surprise. Hyde is a veteran D.C. criminal lawyer who obviously knows the system inside and out.”
Joseph Scarpato Jr.
Mystery Scene Review
“Hyde has whipped up a tangled complex tale replete with a diverse set of mad characters enhanced with his knowledge of the legal profession . . . the plot’s well-pacing with its twists and turns continually deceive readers- keeping them off balance until the last page.”
