Product description


"Gripping and complex ... the intricate plot, spot-on dialogue and vivid descriptions will keep readers turning the pages." --Publishers Weekly on Spider Trap

"Gripping...Maitland brings the particular world he depicts unforgettably alive. No one who reads this haunting, unnerving work will ever again think about contemporary artists the same way." --Publishers Weekly on No Trace

"A craft and well-crafted showpiece of the genre...Altogether an intricate and maze-like tale well told and well worth the telling." --Los Angeles Times Book Review on The Chalon Heads

"Maitland, perhaps the most underrated writer in the field, puts it all together - a memorably twisty plot, cut-and-thrust investigation, unsparing forensics, psychological penetration - in the complete mystery package." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on No Trace

"As a procedural, it is first-rate; as a crime thriller, it is compelling; and as a reflection of of contemporary life, it is fascinating." --Dallas Morning News on Silvermeadow

"In what may be his best book yet, Maitland starkly contrasts the modern art worldview of life as art/art as life with the police attitude that life is not a game." --Library Journal on No Trace

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
