A Cold and Broken Hallelujah by Tyler Dilts
"Fast read- loved the ending!"
Tyler and 2 other people liked Johnny's review of King of Infinite Space, A:
King of Infinite Space, A by Tyler Dilts
"A solid police procedural set in Long Beach, California. Well told and well written, a meat and potatoes mystery. This really feels like the beginning of a long series, which means that we are only getting the very tip of the iceberg when it comes..." Read more of this review »

“and the way life is really just a series of losses, one after another after another, and how the moment we realize that is the moment we begin to die.”
Tyler Dilts, A Cold and Broken Hallelujah

“The truth doesn’t set you free. More often than not, it does just the opposite. It weighs on you.”
Tyler Dilts, A Cold and Broken Hallelujah

“No one without sociopathic or psychotic tendencies can be glad at the news of another person’s death, but there is a kind of surge of adrenaline and sense of purpose that can be very powerful. It is without doubt a dark and complicated feeling, shared with firemen and soldiers and paramedics and emergency-room workers, that comes from knowing that you can only be at your best and only really achieve any kind of fulfillment when what is at stake is literally life and death.”
Tyler Dilts, A Cold and Broken Hallelujah
