"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.

“For the first time it came to me that we’re damned every bit as much by the things we don’t do as by the things we do.”

—Lew Griffin in Black Hornet, ©1996 by James Sallis.

Maybe more because they often involve a conscious decision-making process whereas we jump into action, sometimes without thought. Sure like Sallis.
