Michael Sears


"Action-packed series launch...Razor-edged prose, sharply defined characters, and a fast-paced plot boost this noir-wrought drama." --Publishers Weekly

"Sears makes real estate law as sexy and dangerous as international intrigue." --Kirkus

"A contemporary Philip Marlowe comes to Queens in this wonderfully engaging caper--a brilliantly character-driven mystery--set in the seedy street corners and seedier courthouses of New York. Michael Sears, master of financial secrets, spins a non-stop pursuit of not-quite-illegal big bucks and the power that goes with them--and the wisecracking wise guys who will stop at nothing to grab it all. Sears absolutely nails the voice of his endearingly vulnerable tarnished-lawyer turned sletuh--TOWER OF BABLE is a terrific book." --Hank Phillilppi Ryan, nationally best-selling and award-winning author of The Murder List

"TOWER OF BABEL is so full of New York characters and locations that you'd swear it was written on asphalt...A fast-moving and, because it involves corrupt politicians and shady real estate developers, completely believable plot." --SJ Rozan, best-selling author of Paper Son

Praise for Michael Sears

"Through four novels, Sears has shown he'll go to astonishing lengths to avoid making his hero, Jason Stafford, one more cookie-cutter PI...Sears delicately intertwines three distinct plot strands...Sears outdoes himself." --Bookliststarred review, for SAVING JASON

"Sears's exciting fourth novel featuring disgraced Wall Street trader Joason Stafford...Stafford is a flawed protagonist who is resourceful and touchingly vulnerable." --Publishers Weekly, for SAVING JASON

"Sears explores Jason's need for redemption...these high standards excel in SAVING JASON, Sears's compelling fourth novel in which Jason's investigation of shady stocks trading leads to a whirlwind of a plot..the main pleasure in this series is how Sears finds new depth in Jason." --Sun-Sentinel, for SAVING JASON

"It is not a stretch to say that LONG WAY DOWN will be one of the best thrillers of 2015. The story has a touch of kindness and love, as well as twists and turns based on absolute greed and corruption, making this a thriller that will be unforgettable for suspense fans everywhere." --Suspense Magazine, for LONG WAY DOWN

"As soon as Stafford tears into his new assignment, a buzz starts that won't let go. The tension and suspense are genuine and gripping." --Booklist, starred review, for LONG WAY DOWN

"If someone had told me one of my favorite new series would be about a disgraced Wall Street trader turned financial wrongdoings investigator, I would not have put money on it. But Michael Sears' Jason Stafford Series is so compelling you'll be turning pages even if all you balance is your checkbook." --Cleveland Plain Dealer, LONG WAY DOWN
