What People Are Saying…

{

Outstanding! An intriguing game of cat and mouse between a pair of bank robbers and multiple law enforcement agencies over the course of decades. Deftly plotted and effortlessly shifting between decades, Robbers and Cops is a page turning suspense novel and a nuanced character study. Al Smith is a competent, tenacious, and flawed police detective who is worth rooting for. The police work is authentic, and the Bay Area setting is as perfectly drawn as a sunset over the Golden Gate. George Cramer is at the top of his game. Highly recommended.

A fascinating odyssey of complex characters—robbers and cops, that spans five decades in its telling. Imagine if Elmore Leonard had written The Grapes of Wrath, tossed in a dash of The Naked and the Dead, and finished up morphing into a pure Joseph Wambaugh police procedural… Do yourself a favor and pick up Robbers and Cops, by George Cramer. It’s a sure fire, can’t-put-it-down, winner.

The Mona Lisa Sisters is a tender journey into the making of a family. The novel is full of careful historical detail and the pleasure of European trains and cities and plenty of mystery to keep the pages turning, but the greatest delight is Lura Grisham herself.
