PRAISE

Praise for the Pacific Homicide Novels

The Second Goodbye
"Sassy and analytical, L.A. Detective Davie Richards utilizes 'shoe leather and minutiae' to unravel a brilliantly staged fake suicide. Seamless prose, tightly crafted clues, and surprising twists make The Second Goodbye a memorable police procedural. Brew the coffee for the graveyard shift, as you'll be up all night reading."—K.J. Howe, best-selling author of The Freedom Broker and Skyjack

"Patricia Smiley tackles Michael Connelly territory and succeeds with a realistic, compelling police procedural in the badlands of contemporary Los Angeles. Detective Davie Richards is a smart, no-nonsense heroine, and the storytelling had me turning the pages at the expense of mundane activities like sleeping. The Second Goodbye is an intriguing mystery laced with well-researched law enforcement practices."—Raymond Benson, author of In the Hush of the Night and The Black Stiletto Serial

"The Second Goodbye is a straight ahead jolt of police procedural adrenaline! Like Michael Connelly, Patricia Smiley grabs a hold of you and pulls you into the story without tricks or gimmicks. Just a great story told by a great storyteller. The Second Goodbye catapults Smiley onto the top tier of crime writers!"— Matt Coyle, Anthony Award-winning author of the Rick Cahill crime series

"A thoroughly satisfying and well-crafted police procedural."—Bookreporter

It's a page-turner from moment one."—Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha–, Anthony–, and Mary Higgins Clark Award–winning author

"Pacific Homicide combines an insider's knowledge of the LAPD with a clear-eyed, no-nonsense heroine and an entertaining dry wit. Davie Richards is easy to fall in love with and her story is full of surprising twists."—Matt Witten, writer and producer for Pretty Little Liars, House,Medium, Law & Order, and Homicide

"Patricia Smiley, at the top of her form in this multi-layered thriller...writes with the authenticity of Joseph Wambaugh."—Paul Levine, bestselling author of Bum Rap
