The Concrete Maze - more blurbs/news

More backpatting. I thought I'd share a couple more blurbs for the novel I have coming out this Summer - The Concrete Maze. Then I'll share some news.

Brilliant, beautiful, and ultimately devastating.
Steven Torres knows New York City, and knows noir,
better than the rest of us combined. He's taken that place where literature meets crime and made it his own.

Sara Gran, author of
Dope and Come Closer


Man, Steven Torres is a talented writer, and if you haven't discovered him yet The Concrete Maze is the perfect place to start. It's tough, fast-paced, gripping, and hard-boiled to the bone....I simply loved it.

Jason Starr, author of


The Concrete Maze has all the clockwork of a tightly-wound thriller, but
Steven Torres knows where to find the beating heart inside the machinery. Hard but humane, with the echoes of blood history at every
plot turn, this book is written to linger."

Sean Doolittle, Author of
The Cleanup

If it looks like I could have written these blurbs myself, that's a reflection of how kind these writers are. Not really knowing them personally (I've met Mr. Doolittle, and had some conversations with Mr. Starr, but have never met Ms. Gran except cyberly)they could have each blown me off and chucked the ARC in the trash. They didn't and I'm grateful.

Now, the news. I've been given a look at the cover art for The Concrete Maze, and I thought it arresting. It features Starr's blurb on the cover. If I could figure out how to post images, you'd get a glance. Oh well.

I swear I tried about a dozen times with absolutely no results. Tried again five minutes ago and it worked. Go figure. Hope you like it.
