>>> ‘Mark Wallace Maguire uses dialogue-driven plotlines to naturally unfold twists and dark alleys without cryptic references or excessive force. You hear the mood in music prose rarely conveys. This is sharp skill married to a detective’s cynicism, and topped off with enough chaos to keep you close. You cannot kill a good story. ” – Clifford Brooks, Pulitzer-Prize nominee, author of Athena Departs and The Draw of Broken Eyes and Whirling Metaphysics.
