Críticas:

"A nicely orchestrated rescue set in simpler times, with sturdy prose, nonstop action, and steady suspense." -Library Journal of The Angel Gang "Kuhlken brings the social and cultural scene of the period vividly to life." - Publisher's Weekly of The Do-Re-Mi "Kuhlken mixes historical and fictional characters with an ease that will remind many of Max Allan Collins's Nate Heller series (True Crime, etc.). He's equally adept at melding the murder inquiry with Hickey's struggles with his dysfunctional family." --Publisher's Weekly "Kuhlken demonstrates his command of keeping a story moving with a meticulously thought-out plot while populating it with believable characters. Fans of Les Roberts's Saxon novels will enjoy this title for its similar L.A. ambience. It will also appeal to readers interested in early 20th-century California history." --Library Journal ..".readers will enjoy this fast-paced historical amateur sleuth mystery." --Midwest Book Review "A nicely orchestrated rescue set in simpler times, with sturdy prose, nonstop action, and steady suspense." -"Library Journal" of "The Angel Gang" "Kuhlken brings the social and cultural scene of the period vividly to life." - "Publisher's Weekly" of "The Do-Re-Mi"" " "Kuhlken mixes historical and fictional characters with an ease that will remind many of Max Allan Collins's Nate Heller series (True Crime, etc.).

Reseña del editor:

Praise for The Biggest Liar in Los Angeles..."Kuhlken demonstrates his command of keeping a story moving with a meticulously thought-out plot while populating it with believable characters." -Library Journal In 1926, musician Tom Hickey reads about a lynching the Los Angeles newspapers failed to report and realizes the Negro victim is an old friend. He goes to his neighbor, LAPD detective Leo Weiss who confirms that, officially, the lynching didn't occur. The murder happened in Echo Park, across the street from evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson's Angelus Temple. When Tom goes there looking for clues, he is greeted by an usher who continues to follow him after the service. Leo, a speakeasy owner, and a Klansman all warn him he's made formidable enemies- among them publisher and political heavyweight William Randolph Hearst. When Tom discovers the key to the murder, it lies close to home. Ken Kuhlken's novels have been honored as finalist for the Ernest Hemingway Award for best first novel, won the Private Eye Writers of America/St. Martin's Press Best First Novel competition, and been chosen as finalist for the Shamus Best Novel Award. He lives and writes in La Mesa, California.www.kenkuhlken.net
