"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

Thanks, Patrick. I'm just proud I could bring Lord Stanley's Cup home to reside in Maine this year.

Wait, I DON'T get the Stanley Cup for this? WTF, Sandra!

Well, I could get you a hockey puck plaque - that is an option!
