Last Lawyer Standing by Doug Corleone Night on Fire by Doug Corleone One Man's Paradise by Doug Corleone

Praise for GONE COLD

“A heart-pounding third installment… In this unstoppable page-turner with its wicked humor, detailed settings and action-packed scenes, Corleone keeps you on the edge of your seat.” ~Honolulu Star-Advertiser
“Corleone’s prose is lean, his plotting tight, and his characters vividly drawn. [Simon] Fisk is one of the more interesting series leads in the contemporary thriller genre.” ~Booklist

Praise for PAYOFF

“A lean, mean, pedal-to-the-metal thriller. Like Good As Gone, the novel accelerates to high speed almost immediately and doesn’t slow down until the book is finished… Another winner.”  ~Booklist

“A gripping page-turner.” ~Honolulu Star-Advertiser

“Nonstop action… [T]he author has done an amazing job in crafting this character. If you like fast-paced stories with cinematic scenes, you need to check out this book.”
-Mystery Tribune

Praise for GOOD AS GONE

 If James Bond were in the business of rescuing kidnapped children, he might easily be mistaken for Simon Fisk, the haunted hero of this slam-bam thriller…  [Good As Gone is] an adrenaline rush with a character worth rooting for.~Publishers Weekly
“[F]ast paced and lean…  [O]nce the story kicks into high gear, which is pretty much at the top of page 2, it doesn’t let up, period.”  ~Booklist (Starred review)
Good As Gone makes for a heart wrenching but also adrenaline producing adventure that readers should eat up… Corleone races with the wind in telling Fisk’s story, and leaves the reader gasping for breath at the end.” ~Huffington Post
“Like Lee Child, Corleone delivers an adrenaline-fueled plot with believable, complex characters.” ~South Florida Sun-Sentinel


“A perfect blend of mystery and thriller, with laugh out loud moments sprinkled liberally throughout. Corleone is as good as it gets.”
—David Rosenfelt

“Corvelli is a likable, pillpopping [defense attorney], and the secondary characters are Elmore Leonard quirky, never cartoonish. Throw in some sudden violence and loopy humor, and you have a fun, escapist reading experience.”

“A superb blend of tense courtroom drama and bloody noir set against the lush background of Honolulu, Hawaii.”
–Gumshoe Review

Praise for NIGHT ON FIRE

“Kevin [Corvelli] tries a mean case and tells a fine story.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The John Grisham-style twists and turns and cinematic courtroom scenes keep the pages turning…”
Library Journal

“Douglas Corleone’s second look at the seedy side of life, lawyering and untimely death on Oahu in the 21st century…is a page-turner in the best sense of the word.”
—Honolulu Star-Advertiser

“The current crop of legal thrillers is further graced with the presence of Douglas Corleone, who follows his auspicious debut with an equally enjoyable successor, which continues the saga of Kevin Corvelli, a charismatic defense attorney.”
San Diego Tribune


“Fans of John Grisham, Lisa Scottoline, and other legal thriller authors will enjoy this for the sheer pleasure of seeing a master defense attorney at work in the courtroom.”
Library Journal

“This novel won the Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award, and it’s no wonder. Former defense lawyer Corleone has created a crafty and memorable character and placed him in a suspenseful and layered story. . . .  A sequel to this fine debut would seem almost mandatory.”

“This is a strong book, one with the ring of authenticity. Corvelli—and by extension, author Corleone—[is] a quick study.”
Honolulu Weekly
