"Cahill is a fantastic addition to the PI literary canon. He's a sympathetic character with deep flaws but an unnerving drive to find truth at any cost... Expertly written and featuring a snarky and self-deprecating hero, Blood Truth builds up compelling mysteries and thunders toward a satisfying, if surprising, ending." Starred Review
