Praise for BURY THE PAST:

“[A] tight sequel to 2016’s At What Cost..L’Etoile, a former associate prison warden, keeps the suspense high while illuminating the culture of criminals and the ties that bind cops.” — Publishers Weekly

“Hugely entertaining thriller…shrewdly plotted.” — Booklist

“L’Etoile…vividly evokes the chaotic license to kill that pervasive official corruption releases.” — Kirkus

“L’Etoile’s authentic tone and snappy dialog keep the pace sprinting along here. This is one for fans of Karin Slaughter, especially those who enjoy her Will Trent books.”
IndiePicks Magazine
