Category 305
“Magic City is a fast, engrossing read and a lot of fun.” 

The News & Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina)
“…’Magic City’ evolves in its torrid final pages into a provocative and memorable saga. It’s like “Chinatown” with black beans and rice.”  

The New York Sun
From an opening scene that charges out of the box like a greyhound on amphetamines, to the climactic denouement that will leave the reader as limp as two-month old kale, the pace of “Magic City” never slows.”

Baltimore Sun
“Hall’s action scenes are starkly poetic…”

Oline Cogdill, Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
“Hall has delivered the quintessential South Florida novel in Magic City. “

Chauncey Mabe, Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
