Reviews

"Compelling, slick, exuberant, flashy, funny, fierce, and cinematic . . . Deftly written with panache and polish . . . This remarkable novel, a lean, psychologically unsettling noir tale, will stay with you long after you put it down and regretfully say, 'I wish I wrote that.'"
-"Library Journal," starred review
"One of the best books I have ever read. . . . The writing is powerful, it takes hold of you from the first page and that hold gets tighter and tighter until the heart-wrenching ending. It was impossible to put down. "Good Neighbors" is a book not to be missed."
-Kendall Gutierrez, "Suspense Magazine"
"Intensely gripping . . . A fine and memorable novel."
-"Booklist," starred review
"Heart-stopping."
-"Library Journal"
"Darkly powerful . . . Jahn inhabits these people and their problems so completely and convincingly that they don't seem like monsters even as they ignore the woman who's dying only a few yards away."

-"Kirkus Reviews"
"A terrific debut . . . A wonderfully visual book-the effect is of watching, unseen, through a dozen different windows as Jahn switches from one scenario to the next. Powerful, compassionate and authentic, it works both as a mystery and as a snapshot of America in the early 1960s."
-"The Guardian
"Intensely gripping . . . A fine and memorable novel."
