"Strong characters and far-flung settings propel Matanzas, the ninth novel in Garry Ryan's groundbreaking Inspector Lane series. Ryan takes Lane and his cast of well-drawn supporting characters from Cuba to Calgary, in a breakneck chase to stop a malicious and truly memorable villain. Matanzas is Ryan's best to date!"
  - Sam Wiebe, author of Last of the Independents and Invisible Dead.

Praise for Glycerine:
"Ryan writes in a no-nonsense prose that reads like a police procedural destined for the screen."
  - Mari Sasano, Alberta Views
Praise for Foxed:
Ryan's prose is clear without being flashy, his antagonist is suitably villainous without descending into melodrama, the police themselves show a laudable diligence and the supporting characters are allowed their own flashes of competence and plunk."
  - Publishers Weekly
“Ryan has penned a haunting, psychological drama of the first order.”
- Edmonton Journal
“Watching Lane and Harper unpeel the layers of this particular onion is an amazing experience.”
 
- The Star Phoenix
