What elevates and sets THE OUTSIDER apart from so many other mystery novels out there is the intriguing Muslim-American detective Ash Rashid and the heartland Indianapolis location - both gutsy choices. Chris Culver is a writer to watch for years to come.
The Outsider is a smart and compelling crime novel, and Ash Rashid is a tough yet tender-hearted hero. Chris Culver is a daring new voice in crime fiction. Highly recommended
Ultimately, the reason to come to this book and stay is Rashid . . . His navigation through the system - and his own heart - is ultimately what makes The Outsider such a joy to read . . . This and future volumes should be snapped up as quickly as the author can write them
