"Hecht is so good at making his ghosts and demons believable that [Land of Echoes] quickly caught me up in its exciting story...Well balanced and beautifully written."-Chicago Tribune
"Daniel Hecht scores again in a series that is absorbing, lyrical, and altogether frightening. His exploration of the supernatural, the Navajo culture, and the beauty of the New Mexican desert all come together in a story that is as enthralling as it is evocative...This is one series you won't want to miss."-New Mystery Reader
"Hecht evokes the setting and the Navajo culture with skill and sensitivity."-Cleveland Plain Dealer
"As with the first Cree Black novel, Hecht balances paranormal phenomena with everyday concerns...Creepy and convincing."-Booklist
"Shocking and heartbreaking...Read it!"-Arizona Tribune
