For years, mystery novelist Larry Beinhart has been delighting and provoking readers with novels like American Hero-which was filmed as Wag the Dog—and The Librarian, which Rolling Stone described as "John Grisham meets Jon Stewart."

Beinhart has a new novel, SALVATION BOULEVARD—just published this week by Nation Books—which has already drawn praise from a wide array of novelists, political figures, theologians and...atheists.

It's a thriller about death, faith and the greatest of mysteries, God. Its narrator is a born-again Christian private eye who finds that an investigation of his into the murder of an atheist brings him into conflict with the mega-church he is a member of and the right-wing pastor who he believes has saved him.

Ace crime writer Donald Westlake says SALVATION BOULEVARD will "grip you, first page to last." Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi says it's "a great and memorable read." Ambassador Joseph Wilson says in "Orwellian times, fiction is often the only way to get the truth out...Larry Beinhart masterfully alerts us to what depths our government have sunk."

Publishers Weekly calls it, in a STARRED review, "splendid religious legal thriller."
