THE FAVOR

"There are echoes of Georges Simenon and Patricia Highsmith, but the voice is very much SaFranko's own. [The Favor]... is one of SaFranko's earlier works, and while some discerning readers may detect minor youthful flaws, it is still a little cracker: a page turner, a thought provoker, a literary gem."
- Joseph Ridgewell, Guardian Unlimited

"A mystery wrapped in pathological overtones, nicely plotted...."
- Z Miscellaneous

THE SUICIDE

"Mark SaFranko is a master storyteller who never shies away from the darkest themes of guilt and retribution. The Suicide is a first-rate intelligent thriller, teeming with complex characters finely honed right down to the depths of their souls. A marvelous and totally compulsive read from one of America's finest writers."
- Sam Miller, New York Journal of Books

"Its authenticity comes from its characters, contradictory blends of individual, archetype and unknowability: real people. It's a thriller that's nothing you quite want to be, but everything it could be, a potent reminder that real life doesn't fit into narrative arcs."
- Foyles (UK) Best Books of 2014

NO STRINGS

"A clear-cut, no-nonsense, brutal narrative about sex, lies, murder, and lost love."
- Verbicide

"Mark SaFranko has hit another dark and debauched homerun."
- New York Journal of Books

HOPLER'S STATEMENT

"Mark SaFranko's Hopler's Statement is a gripping tale of suburban betrayal and obsession that explores the limits of reality -- what happened, what we can know about what happened, and what even major players caight in the grip of an unfolding tragedy believe has happened to make their lives combust. It is at once steamy, beguiling, restless, sometimes brutal, and passion-filled, yet penned with certain taste and great skill. My one wish is that I had written it."
- Bartholomew Gill, Peter McGarr Mysteries
