Praise for Tony Cavanaugh:
“Chilling and memorable; top-notch Aussie Noir”
– WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN ON PROMISE
“Compulsive reading, Promise itself is more menacing, more disturbing and much more confronting than any other crime thriller on the shelves. It is brutal. It is terrifying. It is a brilliant book.”
– ROB MINSHULL, ABC RADIO ON PROMISE
“...an effective, tough, brutal, well-written thriller that grips from the opening pages and never relinquishes its hold on your nerves. Likely to be the Australian crime debut of the year.”
– THE CANBERRA TIMES ON PROMISE
“Promise is an unflinching thriller with a flawed hero, a brutal villain and a great sense of atmosphere, place, justice and injustice.”
– WEST GOLD COAST BULLETIN ON PROMISE
“One of the most complex and uncompromising heroes since Harry Bosch.”
– WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN ON DEAD GIRL SING
“Tony Cavanaugh brings new depth and dimension to crime fiction in this country.”
– THE WEEKEND WEST ON THE TRAIN RIDER
“The good part of any crime story is an intricate yet totally authentic plot, allowing the reader to suspend disbelief the entire journey. Mr Cavanaugh manages this with the deftness of a tightrope walker.”
– NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS ON PROMISE
