Coming off a starred review in Publishers Weekly, EL GAVILAN gets some pre-release attention from Barnes & Noble via Jedidiah Ayres:
"El Gavilan by Craig McDonald. McDonald's first novel Head Games was an instant classic, a terse, two-fisted, bullet-riddled and amphetmine-fast introduction to his fictitious mid-century American pulp writer Hector Lassiter. Three Lassiter books later, he's sidestepping to a new stand-alone and modern day tale of border tensions in... Ohio? Man, this looks fantastic with its James Ellroy-esque three-cop structure and lurid, ripped from the (tabloid) headlines, bloody tale of 'shifting alliances and whiplash switchbacks.' Can't wait."
