Praise for Black Light

"Put on your seat belt—Black Light is a wild ride you won't forget."The Chicago Tribune
"Nobody writes action better than Stephen Hunter and Black Light is one of his best. . . [The] action scenes play like a movie, the plot is intriguing and the writing is top-notch."—Phillip Margolin

"Only a handful of writers today can match Hunter for imagination and the ability to make a reader's adrenaline rush."New York Daily News

"Filled with detail, clever plotting, suspense, and a hunt to the death that leaves the reader dry-mouthed with tension. Hunter knows his guns, and he writes about them with a precision that holds the attention of even a fervent anti-gun supporter."The Orlando Sentinel

"One of the most skilled hands in the thriller business. The plot is fast-paced, well-constructed and builds to a pulse-pounding night ambush. . . . It should seal his reputation as an author who not only can write bestselling thrillers, but write them exceedingly well."Publishers Weekly
