Praise for Let It Burn:
"As the tense story unfolds, the action builds to a violent climax. This beautifully crafted novel lives up to the standard fans have come to expect from one of the few writers to have ever been honored with two Edgar Awards."-- Associated Press
"This may be his best one so far." -- Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
"Steve Hamilton has written another compelling addition to his continually outstanding Alex McKnight series with Let It Burn. As always, Hamilton's writing is realistically stylized with three-dimensional characters and atmospheric locales. You literally feel the heartbreak of present-day Detroit in comparison to its former glory days as the renowned Motor City. Let It Burn is thrilling crime drama at its very best."
