Praise for Ain’t Nobody Nobody
“One of the best books of the year. This cracking debut is packed with quirky characters that I adored. Ellett’s dialogue sparks off the page and the rural Texas setting where the county dump is a landmark is hypnotic and unceasing.” ―Carole Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
“Funny, heartfelt, and suspenseful, AIN’T NOBODY NOBODY is terrific from the first page to the last. Grab it.” ―Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author of the UNSUB series
“(An) auspicious debut…Ellett balances the goofiness of the crimes and setting with some effective storytelling, never letting the real emotional stakes for the characters get obscured. Carl Hiassen fans will find a lot to like.” ―Publishers Weekly
“This debut novel is most notable for Ellett’s supremely witty prose and the oddball but deeply relatable characters. Readers looking for a fresh, offbeat voice in the mystery genre will find it here.” ―Library Journal
