"To read S.J. Rozan is to experience the kind of pure pleasure only a master can deliver." --Dennis Lehane "With Winter and Night, S. J. Rozan paints with the full pallette of the human heart, using depth, detail, and nuance of character I haven't seen since Raymond Chandler (Yes, I mean it.)" --Robert Crais"Featuring two of my favorite characters in crime fiction, Bill Smith and Lydia Chin, Winter and Night is a chilling and compelling look at the dark roots of violence among American teens. The most intense and topical works from one of America's finest crime writers today." --Linda Fairstein"engrossing storytelling ... As 'The Shanghai Moon' demonstrates, there's plenty of possibility lurking in the old missing-gems plot. It just takes a master like S.J. Rozan to restore the luster of a classic." --Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
