Booklist: "Full Throttle Narrative"

Once again, the fine folks at the American Library Association's magazine Booklist give a Keller novel a great review...the best part:

Like James W. Hall’s similarly one-named hero Thorn, Keller faces a soul-crushing catch-22: he must unleash his propensity for violence to protect his loved ones, but by doing so, he alienates himself from those he seeks to save. Rhoades explores this psychological conundrum thoroughly but never at the expense of the full-throttle narrative. Think of Keller as a similarly tortured, contemporary version of William Munny in Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven.
