CAROLINA SKELETONS
“This sensitive, well-written book is full of compassion and understanding.”
— New York Times

NIGHT OF THE ICE STORM
“Coolly terrifying . . . The killingly suspenseful plot is guaranteed to keep the reader’s nerves frazzled.”
— The New York Times

“[A] well-wrought, suspenseful tale . . . Stout’s prose is deft, his dialogue credible and fast-moving. The denouement, while logical and satisfying, will surprise even the most astute mystery reader.”
– Publishers Weekly

NIGHT OF THE DEVIL
“The account of the brutal shooting of two policemen continues to draw shivers and speculation, even after four decades…. David Stout… bring[s] focus to a barroom haze…. unveils the conflicting stories and patiently peels away the improbable.”
– The New York Times

“Stout… has penned a well-written work…. The result is an engrossing account.”
– Library Journal

THE BOY IN THE BOX
“The Boy in the Box is a an excellent book, telling one of the most heartbreaking stories you will ever read. It’s a book that should have never been written but had to be. And not only do I recommend you read it but I strongly encourage you to share the story with others. Hopefully one day soon, before another half century passes and any chance passes, someone, somewhere can name America’s Unknown Child.”
