BOOKLIST (STARRED REVIEW)
ABANDON…demands to be read in one sitting, so you can better appreciate the beauty of Crouch’s storytelling…[O]ne of those books that almost instantly puts you in the mind of a classic.
Weaving the past and present together with such seamless skill that from the prologue to the last page, this book captures the imagination. [ABANDON] has the arc and flow of a master storyteller. Easily my favorite book of this year.
Highly recommended, this is easily one of the best this year.
NEW MYSTERY READER MAGAZINE
ABANDON is terrific…a great storyteller hitting his stride.
Gut wrenching…the writing is tight, the plots exciting, the suspense unending…Crouch tops my list.
Expertly paced and viscerally effective, with many surprises and genuine chills.
Blake Crouch is the most exciting new thriller writer I’ve read in years.
Harrowing…terrific…a whacked out combination of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy.
Crouch delivers his description of place with vivid prose…his carefully crafted characters make the story immediate, intense and thoroughly believable.
This is a complex, cleverly constructed novel of motive, and Crouch takes his time bringing us through the story…a great debut. Crouch is an author to watch.

he last thing Louis Rosen expected of his son, Billy, was that he would volunteer for the draft after graduating from Harvard in 1949 with highest honors; and the last thing Billy expected of his father was that he would become a partner in a criminal enterprise known as “Furax Unlimited.” Yet, when these two events unexpectedly collide and connect, Billy’s life is changed forever.

Terrorists plan to attack Minnesota’s Prairie River Nuclear Power Plant, but they’re not your typical band of Islamic extremists. True, there’s an al Qaeda connection. But the heart of the ‘terror cell’ is homegrown, right here in the United States.
James “Beck” Becker is a former elite U.S. government intelligence operative who has retired to his childhood hometown of Red Wing, Minnesota – just six miles down the Mississippi from the Prairie River Power Station. He recognizes connections between seemingly unrelated incidents – a murdered agronomy professor, a missing lab assistant, an international cell call, a stolen fertilizer truck, an explosion in the street in front of City Hall – but can’t piece it together in enough detail to convince government authorities that a larger threat exists. Only his American Indian friend, “Bull,” will help Beck defuse the threat.
So it’s Beck and Bull versus the best terror cell west of the Mississippi.
May the better men win.
