Quiver

Published: March 5, 2009

If the best of Tarantino, Carl Hiaasen and Scott Turow was shaken, given a jolt of pure heart and put down on paper, then that would be Quiver. With cracking dialogue, characters nailed to perfection and breakneck pace, Peter Leonard is more than just his father’s son. He is his very own writer and a huge talent.
— Mo Hayder

Quiver is a spectacular debut... you will be holding your breath until the final page. Peter’s dad should be proud.
— Otto Penzler, The New York Sun
Son of Elmore, Peter Leonard is a chip off the old block...Quiver, his debut, is a dark, nasty tale that rattles along at a great pace...Quiver is genre fiction doing what it does best; the dialogue is film-script sharp and the plotting relentless...an exceedingly promising debut by anyone’s standards.
— The Metro (London)
A spare, violent and grittily humorous crime novel…with some cracking dialogue, clever plotting and an enjoyably bloody climax.
— The Times (London)
Hilarious, moving, thoughtful, and with one hell of a story. A major new voice has roared and oh, with such dark ferocity.
— Ken Bruen
Quiver is terrific. I have to make the corniest admission of all: Couldn’t put it down.
— Mike Lupica
Quiver is mature, funny, well paced and smartly structured.
— The Star (Toronto)
Peter Leonard’s first novel, Quiver, amply shows that he’s the great Elmore’s son. This book is a wicked trip…unique and engaging. I salute Peter Leonard at the beginning of what will obviously be a fine career.
— Jim Harrison
Quiver is a terrific debut. Peter Leonard has a good ear for voices, a good eye for detail, and a talent for bringing together elements that can’t do anything but explode.
— Thomas Perry, Edgar Award Winner
