Reviews for Under Water and Against Nature:

"Here be the beginnings of a superb series. A novel that sparkles with wit, sass, and wonderful narrative style. Charles Willeford is rarely mentioned much these days yet his Hoke Moseley series is among the true classics of the genre. Casey is the rightful heir." 
— Ken Bruen, author of the Jack Taylor series

"It does for competitive swimming what Megan Abbott did for gymnastics, exposing the poison at the heart of a coach's and a family's need to win." 
— New York Times bestselling author Andrew Gross

"A sordid tale of murder and sport. It should be mandatory reading for all thriller aficionados.”
— New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry

"Casey Barrett knows the world of swimming as well as almost anyone.  But who knew it could be the source of so much suspense?"
— Bob Costas

“The city becomes a real character in the story as locales of shadowy Manhattan bars and street corners provide vivid texture and an edgy familiarity that we readily embrace. Against Nature is a well-crafted story with a strong and pleasing narrative style that deftly delivers on plot. A satisfying read, and not just for thriller aficionados.” -Booktrib
