Review

Praise for THE FALLEN:
"First-rate." --SUNDAY STAR TIMES
"Creme-de-la-creme crime fiction...if we gave ratings, THE FALLEN would get five out of five stars." --NELSON MAIL
"An intriguing and slickly-told story...rich characterization...vividly evoked setting.' --NEW ZEALAND LISTENER MAGAZINE
"An impressive debut." --TIMARU HERALD
"Anything anyone could want in a thriller." --HER MAGAZINE"
"Praise for BY ANY MEANS:
"[An] absorbing thriller...unglamorous but entirely credible." --SUNDAY STAR TIMES
"Pretty much pitch-perfect." --WAIKATO TIMES
"By any measure a good yarn, but if you consider the age of the author, it is astonishing." --AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLKY
"A master of the short sentence." --NGAIO MARSH AWARD PRESS RELEASE
Praise for ONLY THE DEAD:
"Ben Sanders: Bloody good." --WEEKEND HERALD
"Ben Sanders is a natural...[ONLY THE DEAD] is near impossible to put down." --CHRISTCHURCH WEEKEND PRESS
"Well-crafted...If you enjoyed ONLY THE DEAD as much as I did, then you will be adding THE FALLEN and BY ANY MEANS to your must-read list." --NEW ZEALAND LAWYER MAGAZINE

Advance Praise for "American Blood"
"This novel has it all--great characters that are all too-real, switch-blade sharp writing, dialogue that would bring a smile to Elmore Leonard's face and a plot that grabs a reader by the collar, squeezes hard and never lets go. "American Blood "is a first-rate, first-class, top-tier thriller and Ben Sanders hits it far and deep. This is one book that flat-out demands to be read. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. If you love a good thriller, then look no further than "American Blood.""
--Lorenzo Carcaterra, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Sleepers "and "The Wolf
"""American Blood "is a lean, mean power-packed novel. A hardboiled bolt of lightning to the crime genre. Ben Sanders has set the new standard for gritty, action packed thrillers."
--Victor Gischler, Edgar Award nominated author of "Gun Monkeys
