Praise for Kevin Helmold's Debut Novel Echoes of Torment

"A novel from a fireman lures you into cliché, i.e. the narrative burns off the page, but it really does. A blistering powerhouse of a debut. Carl Braun, the hero, suffering post traumatic stress is absolutely compelling. The novel is also one of the best evocations of Vegas I've ever read. Rarely has a novel got it all…pace, compassion, thrills, style. Echoes does. It burns like all sheer talent does." –Ken Bruen, Shamus Award Winning author of American Skin

Cut the cards and pull up a seat at Helmold's poker table. I guarantee you're in for one fiery read." –Evelyn David, author of the Sullivan Investigation series Murder Off the Books
