"Michael Elias writes women like a woman, and he writes a police thriller like a former cop. You Can Go Home Now will keep you up at night, breathlessly turning the pages until the riveting end. I couldn’t put this book down! Elias has masterfully written a moving and terrifying story that feels so potent and current, I can’t believe something like this hasn’t shown up in the news yet. "
"Surprising, knowing, feminist, ambiguous, perfect."
"You Can Go Home Now is a narrative with muscle, focusing on abuse, humiliation, retribution, revenge. For those of us who love thrillers, who love voice, atmosphere, psychological wrestling matches, Elias delivers."
“Hats off! For those who think there is nothing new under the sun, I suggest they consider Michael Elias’s wonderfully original novel, The Last Conquistador, in which an FBI agent improbably crosses paths with Francisco Pizarro, conqueror of Peru. Elias has done his homework and he writes evocatively of other times and places, spinning an enthralling tale you haven’t heard before.”
