J.D. Knight skillfully entangles his story with offbeat and entertaining twists and odd characters.

      -Publishers Weekly

A slashing thriller… a broad romp through the underbelly of the East Bay with a bullet count that rivals the population of Berkeley.

      -San Francisco Chronicle

J.D.Knight does for Oakland what Raymond Chandler did for Los Angeles.

      - Bonanza Street Books

A Shamus Award finalist with his first book, J.D. Knight is the real deal… a gifted writer with a rare mix of panache and street cred.

      -John Lescroart

He writes a stylish, funny and poetic noir with an action-packed story that barely takes a breath… J.D. Knight joins Harlan Coben as one of the best thriller writers today.

      -Penny Warner

Imagine the comic voice of Chandler stirred with the evil flowers of Baudelaire, and you get a tasty noir cocktail unlike any other.  Knight's prose is on the edge, funny as hell, and filled with the dark music of the city.

      -Thomas Zigal

An impressive writer, who creates a rapid story with a strong sense of place that makes Oakland itself a vivid character.

      -Richard North Patterson

'Downtown Oakland Skyline' by Jim Pire

Below:  Historical home of Oakland's largest daily newspaper, and one block west of Andrea Faber's law office.
