Murder, He Writes

2015-10-05_2011“Michael Hawley is thoroughly familiar with how crimes are investigated, how internal police politics can play a significant and often detrimental part in that investigation, and how incredible the resulting frustration faced by dedicated officers can be.  Add to that mix Hawley’s very readable writing style and a genuine talent at producing cliff hangers which makes it hard to put SILENT PROOF down until those last lines.”

John A. Broussard — I Love a Mystery Reviews

“Sheriff Hawley’s…background brings gritty detail to the gripping page-turner, evoking vivid scenes from the point of view of those who serve on the thin blue line..”  

Peggy McMullen–Portland Oregonian
