The third book in the Cal Claxton Oregon mystery series is coming in September and I’m really excited! ┬áHere’s some advanced praise for the book:

“If you haven’t read Warren Easley, you should. Right now. In Never Look Down, the prose is smooth, the characters nuanced, and the plot resonates” — Mike Lawson, award-winning author of the DeMarco series

Never Look Down is an impeccably crafted novel that hits every note. Memorable characters, a unique plot, and a wonderful sense of place. By all means get this book and settle in for a great read” — Phillip Donlay, acclaimed author of the Donovan Nash series

“Lawyer Cal is an appealing knight in rusty armor, seeking justice for the most vulnerable. His latest case is complicated but holds the reader’s interest. Easley exquisitely captures Portland’s flavor, and his portrayal of street life is spot on. Readers of John Hart and Kate Wilhelm will delight in trying a new author” —Library Journal Review

“…Claxton makes an amiable, low-key lawyer hero, reminiscent of William G. Tapply’s Brady Coyne, and Easley vividly evokes Portland’s street culture” — Booklist Review

“…When Cal and Kelly do connect, they make a formidable and unlikely team as they try to find justice for the killer’s victims. Cal’s name is on the title page, but plucky, resourceful Kelly steals this tense adventure” — Publisher’s Weekly Review
