A SINGLE SHOT, by Matthew F. Jones

“A harrowing literary thriller…a powerful blend of love and violence, of the grotesque and the tender.”
— Chrisopher Lehman-Haupt, The New York Times

“Part Crime And Punishment, part Deliverance and all white-knuckled suspense… A Single Shot packs a helluva punch.” — Pam Lambert, People

“One of the finest novels of rural crime and moral horror in the past few decades.” – Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter’s Bone


DEEPWATER, by Matthew F. Jones

“One of the best novels to cross my desk…Brilliantly written, sweatily erotic, and unbearably suspenseful, Deepwater should go directly to the top of your reading list.” – Les Roberts, The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“[Jones] creates tension with remarkable economy and intricacy in a sinister narrative that ultimately reveals itself as a powerful expression of loneliness, dangerous passions, and the quest for identity.” – Publishers Weekly


BOOT TRACKS, by Matthew F. Jones

“Brilliantly chilling. A nightmare thriller with the power to haunt.” – Kirkus Reviews *Starred Review

“Man did I love this book. And not to get all meta, but it’s hard to write a review of a book you really loved. Superlatives have been sapped of their meaning by overzealous critics, and somehow it sounds fake to say that a book is one of the “best things you’ve read.” It’s just that, sometimes (as in the case of Matthew F. Jones’s “Boot Tracks“) that happens to be true.” Katy Haegele, The Philadelphia Inquirer
