Critical Praise

"A perfectly paced thriller. Each character is rich, haunted, and compellingly alive."

— Marisa de los Santos, New York Times Bestselling Author of Love Walked In


"The Preservationist is laced with foreboding from the first page. Its plot cooks and simmers until it eventually boils over. Justin Kramon knows that crimes of the heart cut the deepest, and he proves himself one of our most versatile and insightful young writers working today."

— Jason Pinter, bestselling author of the Henry Parker series


"The Preservationist offers that rare alchemy of page-turning suspense and first-rate writing. I raced to the explosive conclusion, then found myself haunted by it. One of my favorite thrillers of the year, it's a book you don't want to miss."

— Otto Penzler, Edgar award-winning editor and founder of The Mysterious Press


"The Preservationist effectively mixes literary thriller and realistic horror, as characters’ secrets are revealed with increasing creepiness, and the story unbearable foreboding as the three suspiciously circle one another, landing the reader in a happily torturous state of anxiety."
