I have read various editions of Blackbird over the last 10 years and it's only gotten better with age, so sort of like Helen Mirren. I am very pleased that a larger audience will finally be exposed to the Chronicles of Edison North - it's been a long time coming and has certainly been worth the wait. I hope that you'll all enjoy reading about our favorite pair of misanthropes as much as those of us lucky enough to have been along for the ride have.

Blackbird is a compelling story about a professional serial killer and a burger with mayonnaise. Fiegel is an accomplished author, a huge nerd, and possibly a mild-mannered sociopath. They say write what you know!

I've read this book at least 3 times and I'll probably read it at least 3 more before genetic factors and a super mediocre diet bury me with heart disease. 10/5 would recommend.

If you’re seduced by the deeper, grittier side of literature, this is the book for you. I read an early draft in 2009 and literally could not put this book down. It gave me a very sleepless night while on a business trip but it was well worth it.

Just re-read the latest and STILL COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. The plot is intriguing, the character development is excellent. Highly recommended!
