Reviews and Comments

  • "Reading Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed, the pages flew. I went through them like money. Marc is a natural-born storyteller, as incapable of writing a boring sentence as he was in his former life of writing a lackluster melody"
    coauthor w. James Patterson of THE BEACH HOUSE
  • "Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed is the fast-paced debut mystery by Marc Blatte. Part police procedural, part thriller, part hip-hop noir, it will take you places that no other book has gone before, all with a style that's freakishly relaxed and absolutely authentic. But be forewarned, it's no cozy, and it ain't your mother's thriller either. It's gritty, it's today's urban, and if they could get it in the right hands, it could turn a generation into readers."

  • "They say you should never judge a book by its cover, and certainly not by its title, but come on, is a title like Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed irresistible, or what? The cleverness of Marc Blatte's edgy debut thriller doesn't end there."
