Martin Jenkins, Amazon Review

The Death Merchants found a good balance between the classic detective archetype and the inclusion of unique characters and novel settings. It feels authentic and natural, and I really enjoyed the writing and the way it was paced.

If your choice of fiction is hard boiled thrillers reminiscent of Chinatown, you won’t go wrong with Thom Bennett’s The Death Merchants. I loved the literary and stage references, the humor and the wonderful sense of time. The 1959 Toronto setting is spot-on, the dialogue a delight, and the tough guy protagonist, Cass Gentry, is just the right amount of a gentleman” ---sophisticated, but all male. Thom Bennett is the most versatile writer I know.

The Death Merchants was an entertaining thriller with a riveting plot and memorable characters. It kept me locked in until the very end. An amazing story, set in a very different time ... 1959.

The Man With Hemingway’s Face was a page turning thriller. Looking forward to the next Cass Gentry adventure.
