Hard Feelings had nothing but good feelings towards Pariah (their favorite crime novel of the year), and they seem to feel similarly towards Small Crimes:
"...rife with corruption and brutal violence and told from the criminal point of view. Released from prison after seven years for stabbing a D.A. in the face during an arson crime, ex-cop and addict Joe Denton finds the disfigured attorney gunning for him. Pressure mounts from all sides in this merciless, straight-to-hell story. Great, dark stuff."
