PRAISE FOR NEW LOTS

"Thrillingly complex drug-war novel set in Brooklyn’s Brownsville section…steel-edged dialogue…intensively researched…hard-driving realism."

— Kirkus Reviews

"New Lots is prime-time crime fiction. The action starts fast, roving past drug-ravaged streets, deadly dealers, killers hunting their next target. Clarkson writes with fierce reality, pages filled with characters tabloid-fresh, street-corner dialogue vibrating with the fear which populates the hard zone of the city. New Lots is a roller coaster thrill ride from the opening riff down to a pulse-shredder of a climax. As with many of the characters he has created, Clarkson has bagged himself a hit. New Lots is the proof."

— Lorenzo Carcaterra

"New Lots by John Clarkson is a top-notch, adrenaline-charged, action-packed thriller, ideal for those who are bored with slow-paced, cerebral novels. A gritty, explosive tale, carefully orchestrated. Clarkson solidifies his reputation with a bleak, well-researched, utterly realistic saga of tough life and death on the urban streets."

— Lansing State Journal

"Clarkson has created an assortment of vibrant, realistic players – not exactly likable but certainly watchable…recommended for fans of gritty crime drama."
