Black's Creek

On The Brinks by Sam Millar

“This is a real read-in-one sitting book as the slowly escalating sense of peril and Millar’s descriptive prowess, both of characters and location, keep you immersed in the events of this small but multi-faceted community...brilliant...powerful...Highly recommended and an author that I will unquestionably seek out again.”
Raven Crime Reads

“Sam Millar has written a novel of deep and intense feeling. The writing style has echoes of Huckleberry Finn, Stand By Me and other wonderful coming of age novels. However, the book that kept coming back to me, as I read Black's Creek, was To Kill A Mockingbird. I would challenge anyone not to devour this book in one or two sittings, and I can confidently say that this is a novel like no other I have read in contemporary crime fiction. It is a story of a boy, a dark summer and a harsh introduction to adulthood. Pure Gold.”
Margaret Bonass Madden, Bleach House Library

“Sam Millar didn’t invent the noir crime novel but, as Black’s Creek indicates, he might as well have. This wondrously written and terrifically told tale is a book with a heart, however dark, that will evoke comparisons with Lorenzo Carcatera’s Sleepers, John Hart’s The Last Child and Dennis Lehane’s seminal Mystic River. Millar is more than up to the task of following in such lofty footsteps, and Black’s Creek will haunt you long after the final page is turned. Not to be missed!”
Jon Land, New York Times best-selling author of Strong at the Break and Betrayal

“Sam Millar’s latest novel – Black’s Creek– kicks off with suspense and mystery on page one, and doesn’t let the reader off the hook until the shocking denouement on the last page. A powerful story of murder and revenge, brilliantly told.”
Gordon Ferris, Kindle phenomenon and best-selling crime author, The Hanging Shed

“Black’s Creek will have you breathless from start to finish. An unputdownable crime story from a truly great writer of the genre. Loved it.”
Sheila Quigley best-selling crime author, Thorn In My Side

"This is an uncomfortable book to read, and is all the better for it...the well-plotted twists really do surprise...I was caught up in the action, and deliciously unsure of where it would take me next.”
