never come cheap. Because their decision puts them square in the path
of ruthless men. Men who've been double-crossed, and who wonít stop
until they get revenge.
No matter where they find it.
"GOOD PEOPLE is gleefully dread-filled, mercilessly tense, and moves with the speed of something fired from a sawed-off. Based on his first three novels, one can't help but feel that Marcus Sakey is exactly the electric jolt American crime fiction needs."
Dennis Lehane, bestselling author of MYSTIC RIVER and THE GIVEN DAY
"A killer of a book. If you could read it with one eye closed, you'd feel safer ó edge of the reader's seat stuff, and yet a wondrous streak of compassion tears your heart out. This is the novel that truly launches Sakey into the majors. Magnificent."
Ken Bruen, Edgar-nominated author of PRIEST
"Masterful...having topped his previous two novels, Sakey may have trouble equaling this stellar performance."
Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
"This is neither a simple nor a stereotypical thriller. The action is frenetic, the suspense high, and the results shocking. Highly recommended."
