Reviews
------
PRAISE FOR ROBERT WANGARD'S WORK "Gripping story and expertly developed characters....Fast-paced and rich with intrigue." (Review of Malice.) --ForeWord Clarion Review

"Wangard's novel moves along--twisting and turning--at a brisk pace...[H]is well-drawn detective has enough personality to make readers excited for the next installment." (Review of Target.) --Publishers Weekly Select

"These stories seem to channel the haunting genre of crime fiction that is so popular in Scandinavia at the moment: authors like Jo Nesbo and Steig Larson come to mind." (Review of Hard Water Blues.) --Norwegian American Weekly

"...The protagonist is methodical, perhaps more astute than law enforcement, and projects a calm air of determination in his pursuit of the facts...The book's sole idiosyncrasy, and perhaps its selling point, is a tendency to downplay negative responses to stress with deadpan comedy. Obviously, this technique is used to give Pete the resilience and stamina required to complete his job. The author succeeds in inducing laughter, as well as mystery, creating a page-turner. In Deceit, Wangard exhibits a strong command of language and the ability to escort readers through a complicated plot. The end remains a mystery until the final pages. This winning series shows potential for growth." --Clarion Review

"These stories seem to channel the haunting genre of crime fiction that is so popular in Scandinavia at the moment: authors like Jo Nesbo and Steig Larson come to mind." (Review of Hard Water Blues.) --Norwegian American Weekly
