Donald Levin

Praise for the Martin Preuss Mystery series:


"Great series! With this third Martin Preuss mystery, author Donald Levin has combined his gift for superb storytelling with a complex intertwining of shadowy war crimes tied to contemporary corruptions we unluckily recognize. This may be both the brightest and the darkest tale in this riveting series, where professional duty intersects with one’s personal life. With doubts about his future—and some sense of guilt and sorrow about his own past—police detective Preuss reminds me of Giles Blunt’s John Cardinal and Arthur Lyons’ Jacob Asch. In each of these fine detective novels, as layer upon layer of mystery builds throughout every chapter, one feels nearly breathless by the end. Indeed, Guilt in Hiding is so deeply infused with both a sense of place and the depths of human monstrosity that the reader comes away—delightedly—with the gist that the author seems to know more about such things than one ought to."

—Peter Chiaramonte, author of No Journeys End


"[Crimes of Love] delivers all the elements of a solid police procedural, including a missing child, a determined detective with a fractured heart, slimy suspects, and a surprising ending. I commend Don Levin for bringing realism to an outrageous story of love and violence."

—Elizabeth Sims, author of the Rita Farmer Mysteries


"Crimes keeps you turning the pages . . . and it doesn't disappoint."

—Detroit Metro Times


"Riveting . . . enough mystery, suspense, drama, treachery, betrayal, and intriguing twists and turns [to keep] the reader guessing."

—Jersey Girl Book Reviews
