Editorial Reviews

Review

"[The Unwilling] will confirm John Hart as one of the best crime fiction writers working today." ―Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine

"Another embarrassment of riches from Hart’s seemingly unlimited basket of talents." ―
Book Reporter

"Unforgettable and propulsive ... extremely well-written suspense with emotional depth." ―
AARP

"Often, the most gripping historicals take place during our immediate past as John Hart demonstrates in
The Unwilling...Hart skillfully mines the details of the early 1970s and the impact the Vietnam War had on the country...the story’s strength is its deep examination of characters and the country. Each is a product of the times while trying to look to the future." ―Oline H. Cogdill for the Sun Sentinel

“A compulsively readable work propelled by not only race-against-time action, but also the endearing bonds between siblings put at loose ends by war, prison, and addiction, John Hart’s
The Unwilling provides a unique thriller, well-suited for our times. Hart’s novel proves very much successful, as it allows readers a bit of escapism from the tumultuous world around them.” ―North Carolina Literary Review

"Hart explores matters of courage and cowardice, fear and family, combat and criminality as his narrative takes numerous turns and builds to a conclusion at once frightening and redemptive. Hart combines literary excellence with popular appeal. And in “The Unwilling”― a novel that evokes not only a particular time but also timeless issues―he again burnishes his stature." ―
Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

"Hart's writing is tense and powerful... a novel that you'll be thinking about for a long time after you turn the final page." ―
Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Another scorcher from Hart ... [he] keeps us engaged ... subtly folding quiet, character-driven moments into the story while still powering the narrative toward an all-stops-out ending―and a chilling coda. Remember to breathe after you turn the last page." ―
Booklist (starred review)

“John Hart creates novels that are somehow raw, tender, brutal, and exquisite―all at the same time. Exceptional.” ―C.J. Box, #1
New York Times bestselling author

"
The Unwilling is crime fiction at its absolute best. An impeccable story teller, John Hart weaves an intricate tale of family, war, prison, and murder into a thoroughly thought provoking and enjoyable read that I absolutely could not put down." ―Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One Minute Out

“John Hart writes about violence with frightening passion and vivid description. At the same time he masterfully lets you see inside a powerful family dynamic. His villain will be in anyone’s top 2.” ―John Sandford, #1
New York Times bestselling author of The Prey Series

"Richly complex, as intricately woven as a fine tapestry, soul-piercingly emotional, this is John Hart at his lyrical, atmospheric best. He builds a world and draws you in, and there you remain, a willing captive." ―Tami Hoag, #1
New York Times bestselling author of The Boy


Praise for New York Times bestselling author John Hart:

"John Hart can flat-out write." ―David Baldacci

"A master storyteller." ―Harlan Coben

"This generation's Pat Conroy." ―
The Providence Journal

"Hart's writing soars off the page with a lyricism that probably only James Lee Burke can match." ―
Daily Mail (UK)

"If you crave thrillers that are vividly beautiful, graphic, will make you bleed, try John Hart." ―Patricia Cornwell

"Hart writes as if he is channeling William Faulkner, or perhaps collaborating with the Cormac McCarthy of the
Blood Meridian era." ―Book Reporter
