RA Alert: TRUST NO ONE

The Daily Beast extolls Gregg Hurwitz as the “best thriller writer you never heard of,” calling his new book Trust No One “not only his best [book] yet, but one of the best thrillers of the year.” Libraries we checked had four or fewer copies of Trust No One, with up to 20 reserves.

Here’s what The Daily Beast liked most about the book:

Trust No One has action and suspense and all the good stuff readers look for in a thriller, but it also has smarts. Hurwitz clearly put a lot of thought into crafting his plot, and it pays off with a story that is satisfying on both a cerebral and visceral level. It combines the sharp political twists of a book like Robert Ludlum’s The Chancellor Manuscript or James Grady’s Six Days of the Condor with the white-knuckle pacing of a Joseph Finder thriller.

Hurewitz is the author of 2007’s The Crime Writer, which the reviewer also loved.
