The Verdict

J. Michael Major’s debut One Man’s Castle is a kaleidoscopic noir that grabs a reader and carries them away in a fever dream of twisted, mordant suspense. Reminiscent of the works of James Cain and Jim Thompson—perhaps if they were under the influence of LSD—this crazy quilt of crime, horror, and psychological weirdness is an incredibly impressive first novel, as well as a crackling great read.”

Jay BonansingaNew York Times bestselling co-author of The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
