"Robb White has produced a truly memorable PI with his Thomas Haftmann character."
--Frank Westworth, author of the J.J. Stoner novels
Nocturne for Madness
"That guy [the killer] is stunningly scaring — consistently unpredictable and gratifyingly insane. Up there with Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon, in fact.
-- Frank Westworth, author of the Charity novels
"So, if you that Andrew Vacchs writes too light-hearted and Spenser novels are too Disney for you, this is your book."

When You Run with Wolves
This action-packed, sweat-soaked, robbery-gone-wrong would make an amazing movie in the Reservoir Dogs genre. It certainly makes for a damn fine
white-knuckle ride in the written form. Author Robert White plunges you straight into the deep end, hip-high in blunt force trauma, kidney-pulverising

Original and inventive, Northtown Eclipse takes the typical crime cliché of a seedy private eye and subverts the standard hardboiled detective story into
something significantly more substantial. Author Robb White twists the tropes of the genre to tell a much more meaningful story, one which explores the
human condition at its most personal – a troubled relationship between brothers – and on a grander scale, the post-industrial decline of American
--Rowena Hoseason, Murder, Mayhem and More
The Russian Heist "Crackling dialogue delivered in hardboiled style."
Dead Cat Bounce We adore this author's acerbic style, his pace and plotting, his pithy commentary on the scurrilous
side of life. No one writes a three-time loser quite like Robb White . . . Murder, Mayhem, & More
"With his usual razor-sharp writing Robert White takes us further into the world of Northtown & Raimo Jarvi in this second book of what is fast turning out to be a must-read series."
