Jason Starr is one of the new voices of noir fiction, a writer capable of taking noir from what it has always been toward whatever it can become. He's got his own slant, his own slashing style, and the moral honesty true noir requires. I could go on, but just look at the proof, Twisted City -- Daniel Woodrell
Demonic, demented and truly ferocious and a flat out joy to read. In other words, a total feast. Like it?...I plain worshipped it -- Ken Bruen
Streamline as a model's hips, dark as the inside of a dog's gut, Twisted City is a hip, white collar update on the James Cain, Jim Thompson style novel with a seasoning all its own. Jason Starr is a unique talent, and Twisted City is one unique book -- Joe R. Lansdale
To the obsessive emotionality of a Cornell Woolrich and the gleeful nihilism of a Charles Willeford, Jason Starr adds his own 21st-century urban weirdness. Funny, sick and harrowing, often all at once, Twisted City more than lives up to its title, and I enjoyed it tremendously -- Scott Phillips
