The New York Times book review section says this about A Scourge of Vipers, the latest book in my Edgar Award-winning series of hard-boiled crime novels: The protagonist, Liam Mulligan, is barely holding onto his job at a dying Providence, RI., newspaper, “but until someone actually pulls the plug on this once-scrappy daily, Bruce DeSilva gives his smart and funny investigative sleuth something to live and fight for.”
And Suspense Magazine says: “The character of Liam (Mulligan) is going into his fourth book in this series, but this is most definitely a stand-alone novel that can be read by suspense lovers who may have somehow missed the first brilliant books by this author. A quick and compelling story of murder, ethics, and very tough decisions for local law and government to make, this is a powerful crime story with fantastic plotting. . . . Every word is more than entertaining.”
The new novel previously received rave reviews from The Associated Press and The Providence Journal, and coveted starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. It’s available in hardcover, e-book, and audio editions. To order it, you can find a list of chain and independent online booksellers here.
