Review

Praise for "Last to Fold, "which is Nominated for the 2012 Edgar for Best First Novel by an American Author:

"One of the most original protagonists I've ever come across . . . Duffy knows his Russia inside and out, but most of all, he knows how to tell a story with flair and elegance. This is really, really good."

--Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of "Vanished" and "Buried Secrets"

"The dialogue is crisp and rings true, and the main character is easy to like and root for." --"Publishers Weekly"

"A new addition to the line of suspense stars at St. Martin's, introducing an irresistible character and a very rich milieu--the New York City subculture of Russian emigres, underworld characters and ruthless new-rich swashbucklers....I'm looking forward to the next one."

-- "Sullivan County Democrat"

"From guns, drugs and espionage we get the full gambit in the fast and furious look within the Russian mob."

--"Suspense Magazine"

"A compelling, intelligent and witty take on the classic detective story. That the talented Duffy makes his ex-KGB tough-guy into a thoughtful, honorable and even charming protagonist is just one reason this book is terrific--it's also fast-paced, unpredictable and completely original."
--Hank Phillippi Ryan, Anthony, Agatha and Macavity winner, author of "The Other Woman
""David Duffy has done it again: given us a smart, morally complex page-turner featuring ex-KGB agent turned New York City private eye, Turbo Vlost. Like Marlowe before him, Turbo dives deep as he tangles with Russian oligarchs and ghosts from Stalin's gulag. He goes to some dark places but never wavers because truth matters. A fast-paced, witty, bruising, always thoughtful read."
-- Leonard Rosen, Edgar-nominated author of "All Cry Chaos
""I loved David Duffy's first book, "Last to Fold," and I'm here to tell you "In For a Ruble "is every bit as good. If you don't yet know Turbo Vlost and his friends -and enemies- you're a lucky reader, because now you get to meet them. Don't wait!"
--SJ Rozan, Edgar-winning author of "Ghost Hero

"In Duffy's gritty sequel to 2011's Last to Fold, Turbo Vlost, a former KGB operative, has been hired by billionaire Sebastian Leitz to find security flaws in Leitz's computer systems, but he quickly realizes that his employer has much bigger problems than he anticipated. Further investigation leads Turbo to discover that each member of Leitz's family is hiding something, and some of these secrets lead to a malevolent Eastern European computer conglomerate, which has its sights set on Leitz and company. And as if becoming entangled in a family's dangerously dirty laundry weren't enough, Vlost's ex has returned and is looking to reboot their old affair. Saturated with international intrigue and peopled by a cast of sordid characters--including mobsters, pedophiles, and shady businessmen--, Duffy's latest is high-tension, meticulously plotted, and immensely entertaining. Readers will delight in Duffy's handling of the thrilling proceedings."
