Reed Farrel Coleman is a seasoned veteran when it comes to dishing out quality crime fiction. Stories that not only entertain, but also set up shop in your mind for some time. Coleman’s characters–from the part-time PI Moe Prager to his take on Robert B. Parker’s Jesse Stone to his latest hero, Gus Murphy – are flawed, genuine men who struggle with their demons but still manage to scrape their way toward surviving. They’re broken but true, with relatable problems even in the face of unexpected dangers. Coleman’s poetic and workmanlike style has presented readers with stark realities and the people that populate them for decades. His latest novel, WHERE IT HURTS, is no exception.
