JULY, 2021 FROM FAHRENHEIT PRESS
“Faultlessly imagined and beautifully written,
this is one of the best novels I've read all year."
–Timothy Hallinan author of the Simeon Grist, Junior Bender and Poke Rafferty novels
"Perry’s mysteries never fail to mesmerize... With PURE she’s outdone herself..."
– Jeffrey Siger, author of the Chief InspectorAndreas Kaldis novels
"Beautiful story. A fusion of dark and light and mystifying gray: Are ghosts the loneliness of our hearts or the chaperones of destiny? The mystery will get under your skin... the humanity will resonate beyond the page.”
––Steven Cooper, journalist and author of the Gus Parker and Alex Mills series
“PURE is an immersive, twisting and turning metaphysical murder mystery set in the L.A. of 2020 with its Covid lockdowns, conspiracy theories and ethnic hatreds. Highly recommended.” ––Seth Lynch, author of the 3rd Republic novels
PURE by Jo Perry is one of the best descriptions of grief – and of the power of action to bring us back into life – I’ve ever read. It’s contemporary but timeless. It’s a crime novel and a meditation on loss, loneliness, hatred and isolation. But it’s also about hope.”
––Derek Farrell, author of the Danny Bird mysteries
