PRAISE FOR CAPTURE
"A stark reflection on the insidious nature of guilt and grief, CAPTURE explores some of the darkest aspects of the human mind and soul. One of the most deeply satisfying books I've read this year." ELIZABETH A. WHITE -- FLORIDA TIMES-UNION
"Furious, realistic and borderline pornographic. A brutal, bloody portrait of a broken society." ELMAR KREKELAR -- DIE WELT (Germany)
"The plot is operatic in its violence and tragedy and the characters are heartbreakingly real and immensely flawed." PETE DRAGOVICH -- SPINETINGLER MAGAZINE
"Murder, drugs, blood and horror are described in a narrative style reminiscent of Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness'." GöTTINGER TAGEBLATT (Germany)
"Filled with dangerous, flawed people and you care about even the worst of them. Smith's a writer's writer, master of the telling, cutting detail--and he juggles inevitability and the utterly unexpected with a sure and steady hand, guiding you through his city of dark delights." JACK KETCHUM, 4x Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR & THE WOMAN
"What neo-noir is all about: the same sick, twisted, desperate, going-down-the-tubes characters found in original noir plus the faster pace and action usually found in thrillers. Tension ratchets up, chapter by chapter, to a shattering and satisfying denouement." NAOMI JOHNSON -- THE DROWNING MACHINE
"Smith's writing is excellent. Nobody can peel back the layers of damaged people and, indeed, a broken society, so poetically." CRIME FICTION LOVER
"A raw, emotional, intimate psychological thriller. One of my top books of 2012." MACK LUNDY -- AFRICA SCREAMS
"The best thriller I've read this year. It has a complex character driven plot that grips from the first page and cranks the tension up until it reaches breaking point, particularly the finale, which left my nails pretty well shredded." MARTIN STANLEY -- THE GAMBLERS BLOG
"A claustrophobic, confrontational thriller. One of my favorite novels of 2012." BENOIT LELIEVRE -- DEADEND FOLLIES
"Riveting. It features one of Smith's most fascinating creations: Vernon Saul, a character full of self-loathing, venom and rage, who slithers across the pages, tormenting those unlucky souls who have the misfortune of crossing paths with him." DAVE ZELTSERMAN, author of SMALL CRIMES & MONSTER
