Praise for DEVILS AND DUST

"Keller fans will be palpitating at the prospect of a new installment, and those palpitations won’t ease a bit once the first page is turned...For fans of high-octane thrillers that don’t ignore character development, Rhoades belongs on the same reading list with Stephen Hunter, Lee Child, and Randy Wayne White." —Booklist

"Jack is a fun character to root for and more than a little reminiscent of Jack Reacher. This is a fast and fun read, one that will appeal to fans not only of Keller but also to readers of Lee Child and other act first, ask questions later tough guys." —Library Journal

"This is the fourth Keller story, and they are always exciting. Jack is truly a hard man, so you can expect violence, blood and rough action. You won’t be disappointed." —Lincoln Journal-Star

“Entertaining...Rhoades does a fine job of building the suspense and writes convincing action scenes.” —Publishers Weekly

"Excellent...a real page-turner." —Mystery Scene

"Rhoades’ skill will keep readers going." —St. Louis Dispatch

Praise for the Jack Keller series:

"A fine example of redneck noir. Nicely crafted…if you hail from certain dark corners of the sunny South, it's the next best thing to a trip home." —The Washington Post

"Think of Keller as a similarly tortured, contemporary version of William Munny in Clint Eastwood's 'Unforgiven'." —Booklist

"Rhoades slaps this supercharged crime-fiction debut into overdrive in the first paragraph and never lets up through nearly 300 pages of non-stop action." —Booklist (starred review) on THE DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND

"Enjoyable…Rhoades seems to have observed and remembered all the seedy details of life outside the centers of urban and suburban life as we know it. Nobody could totally invent this stuff."
—Chicago Tribune

"The Devil's Right Hand blasts right out of the chute and keeps up the pace until the final paragraph. Steeped in Southern sense of place, the reader can feel the heat and humidity and smell the cordite hanging in the air. J.D. Rhoades writes action as well as anybody in the business, and bail bondsman Jack Keller is a winner." —C.J. Box, author of Trophy Hunt

"Spare, tense and violent, this is a debut that will turn other writers green with envy. Jack Keller is a sure-fire star of the new generation of hard-boiled heroes." —Stephen Booth, author of Blind to the Bones

"Riveting as the rack of a sawn-off shotgun, The Devil's Right Hand is a novel of pace and power, locked and loaded from the start. Bail enforcer Jack Keller, a damaged gulf war veteran, moves the heart in unexpected ways. Keller's quarry Raymond, a drug dealer bent on revenge, pledges 'no more water, but the fire next time'--and it's the fire we get on almost every page of a book that is positively aflame with action. Let's hope that J.D. Rhoades and Jack Keller are due to deliver more of the fire and soon." —Ken Bruen, author of The Guards

"Crisp dialogue and the author's deft use of local color support a narrative driven as effectively by characters as by events." —Publishers Weekly on SAFE AND SOUND
