Past Due by William Lashner

Past Due


. . . Another big and beautifully written saga, narrated by righteous, melancholy Philadelphia lawyer Victor Carl. Though the book is nominally a legal thriller, the Dickensian atmospherics command as much notice as the plot. . . . Lashner's writing—or is it Victor's character?—gains depth and richness with every installment.

- Publishers Weekly

Lashner, best-selling author of Fatal Flaw, has a rich, sometimes poetic style . . .. This is an extremely good crime novel, and it vaults Lashner into the upper reaches of the hardboiled universe, along with Pelecanos, Lehane, and a very few others.
