One of the most riveting and powerful new voices in crime fiction, Peter Leonard delivers a razor-sharp debut thriller.
Kate McCall's husband has been killed by her son, Luke, in a tragic bow-hunting accident. While Kate struggles with her son's surly guilt, her first love, Jack, an ex-con, reappears, along with a crew of his former "colleagues." While Jack must convince his partners in crime that he really did lose the heist money, his appearance sets into motion a series of events culminating in a life-and-death confrontation with a gang of killers.
Leonard displays remarkable maturity for a first-time novelist in both the plotting of the story and the language of his protagonists. The twists and turns of a love affair, an unrequited crush, and a kidnapping/extortion plot complement a tightly drawn, intimate cast of memorably quick and dim-witted characters.
Quiver marks the breakthrough of a new force in thriller writing---an explosive and unforgettable debut.

The dialogue is spot on with what you'd expect. Just a thrilling well written adventure!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The plot was fab, the characters seamy, the dialogue hilariously tacky. I grew up in Birmingham and spent a summer in Northpoint so enjoyed the trek through my old neighborhood. Hope Peter Leonard writes more! I'm definitely an Elmore fan too. Used to see him occasionally at the Baldwin Public Library. Too shy to say hi!
This is a good vacation read!
