PRAISE FOR DUST DEVILS

“A bloody, hair-raising revenge tale.” ANDREW DONALDSON – THE TIMES

“Roger Smith is the master of the coolly-described nightmare.” DER SPIEGEL (Germany)

"A master class in how to create a novel that speaks to the reader on multiple levels, as well as how to infuse a work with a message without beating the reader over the head with it. Truly powerful writing." ELIZABETH A. WHITE – FLORIDA TIMES-UNION

"In the span of just three books Roger Smith's prose has gone from spare and evocative to darkly lyrical. The story's end is a sorrowful angel, breathtakingly cinematic on one level, and on another so personal that the reader's heart bleeds. A brilliant work." NAOMI JOHNSON – THE DROWNING POOL

“A tour de force of a chase and pursuit thriller. I would put Roger Smith in the same class as Elmore Leonard, he’s that good.” MIKE RIPLEY – SHOTSMAG

“A crime ride that is dark, riveting and original.” JOANNE HICHENS – THE CAPE TIMES

"So painfully precise, lucid, compelling that you can’t help but read on." SYLVIA STAUDE – FRANKFURTER RUNDSCHAU (Germany)

“Combustive. Hard to put down.” CRIMEFICTIONLOVER.COM

"One of the best noir thrillers of 2011. A must read!" KEITH RAWSON – EDITOR OF CRIMEFACTORY

“A great thriller.” HOLGER KREITLING – DIE WELT (Germany)

“Topping my list of favorite crime thrillers of all time. Absolutely breathtaking.” DAVE ZELTSERMAN – KILLER & THE CARETAKER OF LORNE FIELD

“An amped-up, page-turning noir sure to leave the reader blistered
and bruised with satisfaction.” FRANK BILL – CRIMES IN SOUTHERN INDIANA

“Roger Smith’s best work. Shocking, unsparing and very satisfying.”
MACK LUNDY – MACK CAPTURES CRIME

“Noir at its most brutal and honest. Not so much about the dark and the shadows as it is about the stark light of the noonday sun.”
A. N. SMITH – HOT DOGGIN’ & YELLOW MEDICINE

“A compelling, high-octane page turner.”
CRAIG RUSSELL – LENNOX & FABEL THRILLERS

PRAISE FOR ROGER SMITH

“Smith writes with the brutal beauty of an Elmore Leonard in a very bad mood.” THE WASHINGTON POST

“Smith is Charles Willeford via James Ellroy – proof that noir
is alive and flourishing." KEN BRUEN – LONDON BOULEVARD

“Smith’s writing is astonishing.” CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER

“You’ll struggle to find a more forceful voice in current crime writing.”
DIE ZEIT (Germany)
