Excerpt from the NetGalley review of Noise:

“This is a fast-paced, action filled novel that will leave you breathless. The main character draws you in to the story from the very beginning, and you’re right there with him through all the passion and the fury that follows. Is it society that corrupts us or do we corrupt society – do we become the very thing we fight against? This is an explosive, and at times terrifying, look at what one man is willing to do for someone he loves. It displays the power of love to bring about change in a person’s life, and how sometimes that power can become uncontrollable.

An action packed, dark novel. It stands out in the mystery/thriller genre because it is different. The characters are well developed and the plot makes some interesting and unexpected turns. It is definitely a page turner and once you start reading, it is hard to put down.

Noise is a force to be reckoned with.”

“By and large this could simply have been the literary equivalent of one of those revenge flicks you curl up with on the couch, a bowl of popcorn and a beer (or two) close at hand. But no, we’re given a story that’s more than popcorn and violence (though there is plenty of the latter). When Rose isn’t detailing Leon’s choreography of investigation and execution, he offers Leon’s reflections on his predicament and surroundings.

Noise is a revenge flick dressed up as art house mystery. Rose juxtaposes brutality with spirited, yet acerbic, prose. Meticulous attention to detail evokes noirish cinematic imagery. Read the book before Hollywood figures out how to make the movie.”

“The Bottom Line: One of the year’s most memorable heroes embarks on a high-velocity quest to save the only woman he’s ever cared about. Leon’s jaw-dropping courage in a world of sleaze and unimaginable danger is pure magic.

While Garcia Rose has created a classic quest thriller, he’s no less devoted to the art of wordsmithing. Noise features some of the most lush language you’ll find in the genre, at times resembling the carefully crafted prose of Cormac McCarthy.”
