ADVANCED PRAISE FOR STORY MERCHANT CLIENT DENNIS PALUMBO'S FEVER DREAM

























“Palumbo’s exciting second mystery featuring Pittsburgh psychologist Daniel Rinaldi…takes the reader into the seamy side of the Steel City, chock-full of corruption and crime, love and loss.” --Publisher’s Weekly
“In this fine novel…Rinaldi’s methods are as much Columbo as shrink: he notices details that don’t fit and picks at them until the whole psychodrama comes clear. A smart, strong read.” --Booklist
"Intricate plotting and mind-boggling twists make Dennis Palumbo's Fever Dream a memorable mystery. The character of psychologist and trauma expert Daniel Rinaldi gives great heart to this story and elevates it to novelistic heights."
--John Lescroart, New York Times best-selling author of Damage

“Lovers of noir will enjoy Dan Rinaldi's fast-paced adventures. Rinaldi, an empathic therapist, is on call to the Pittsburgh police. He needs every ounce of his Golden Glove skills to survive the violent world of Pennsylvania politics.”

--Sara Paretsky, Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, author of the V.I. Warshawski novels

"Fever Dream is another well-wrought puzzle for the likable Dr. Dan Rinaldi to unravel. Fans will be delighted."

--Thomas Perry, Edgar award-winning author of The Butcher’s Boy

“Dr. Daniel Rinaldi is back in a new non-stop thriller that finds the humane, quick-witted Pittsburgh psychologist (and former pugilist) searching for a link between a failed bank robbery, several brutal murders, a homicidal soldier of fortune, a small town ex-sheriff and a gubernatorial election. A fast, gripping read that offers that rare combination of dimensional characters and propulsive action.”
--Dick Lochte, award-winning mystery critic and author of Sleeping Dog

"Palumbo again delivers more great characters, a page-turning mystery and sizzling suspense. If you liked Mirror Image, you'll love Fever Dream."

---Bobby Moresco, Oscar-winning writer/producer of Crash and Million Dollar Baby
