Praise for Book 1--"They Tell Me You Are Wicked"

  • "It works as a whodunit, but it's Cochrane's story and political life that'll provide the fuel for this series." Crime Thriller Hound
  • ..".a compelling picture of the Windy City when it was still in thrall to the mob and its own unique political machine." Shots Magazine
  • ..".outstanding and it is so well-written and well-plotted that it is hard to believe it is a debut novel." Theresa O'Loughlin
  • "This is one of those surprise-ending novels that are so tightly constructed that it's hard to write synopsis without giving away an important detail. Hagerty makes a contemporary political point, but gently enough that you can just enjoy the story if you are not interested in the politics. If you are interested in modern American politics, he may help you understand how people come to take sides on a current issue." Scott D. Saifer

Praise for Book 2--"They Tell Me You Are Crooked"

  • "Another fast paced can't put down book by David Hagerty. Like his first book he keeps you guessing what will happen and then bring you an unexpected "I didn't see that coming" ending. This book is another winner " Terez Lyle
