      ‘Fiercely frightening yet hauntingly beautiful, with a startling heroine you”ll never forget… Shimmers with gorgeous writing even as it scares the dickens out of you.’  —  Tess Gerritsen

      ‘Intense and atmospheric, Generation Loss is an inventive brew of postpunk attitude and dark mystery. Elizabeth Hand writes with craftsmanship and passion.’  —  George Pelecanos

      ‘A skin blistering crime novel as edgy and black as dried blood on a moonlit night.’  —  Robert Crais

      ‘Ferocious, aching with compassion and cruelly brilliant.’  —  Katherine Dunn
