worldreviewPRAISE for World of Hurt
“World of Hurt is a marvelous book…a page-turner rich with engrossing characters, and his feel for the nuances of modern living is quite extraordinary.”
-Jonathan Kellerman

“Amid more gumshoes than any of us sees in the real world, Rosen’s Harvey Blissberg maintains a distinguishing authenticity.”
-Philadelphia Inquirer

“World of Hurt is a wonderful book and completes Rosen’s first grand slam.”
-E. J. Dionne

“Not just a wonderful mystery—a wonderful novel as well.”
-Katha Pollitt

“The harm we do to one another in the name of love is the paradox at the heart of this haunting and elegiac mystery.”
-San Jose Mercury News

“The foreign terrain of the Midwest brings out all the best instincts of this smart sleuth, whose quiet intelligence and dry wit have been much missed since his last appearance….”
-The New York Times

“Rosen writes with a smooth, compelling attention to environments, be they a suburban sushi bar or the Maine coastline. He reins in his humor with a kind and forgiving feeling for people and shifts gracefully through a range of voices.”
-Washington Post

“What an unusually thoughtful and intelligent narrative voice, so rare in ‘detective’ fiction.”
-Joyce Carol Oates
