    Five million stars. But wait, if I rate this book that high, what does that make Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead? Fucking awesome, of course, but I rated that five stars as well. Yet these were two very different, powerful reads. Since we parted ways with Claire way back ...

    Who tried to kill Claire DeWitt in a hit and run? That's what Claire wants to find out but will there be anything left of her when she finds her would-be killer? A funny thing happened a few days ago. I was driving to work, pondering when/if a new Claire DeWitt book would be coming ...

    Dnf , half way though. I usually do not quit Reading a book this late in the story, but I am totally lost. Maybe my concentration level is off, or at least not sufficient enough to follow the back and forth cases in this book. ...

    Netgalley gave me a copy for review and this was one of the best books I've read all year. Thank you Netgalley! Claire DeWitt is the standard, she is the beginning and also the end of my love of this genre, Claire DeWitt is the queen of my heart, Claire DeWitt is the one. Claire DeW...

    If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. So intelligent, enchanting. TIB is full of manic, dangerous energy reminding me why I became a reader in the first place. ...

    Not being a regular reader of mysteries I picked up The Infinite Blacktop after reading a review for the book. No one beats Claire DeWitt she is the world's greatest detective (self-proclaimed). Her world is filled with cases like the Case of the Wilted Rose and the Case of the Emerald...

    Synopsis/blurb.... The "delicious and addictive" (Salon) Claire DeWitt series returns with a thrilling, noirish knockout of a novel that follows three separate narratives starring the self-proclaimed "world's greatest detective." As Cara Hoffman, author of Running, says, this "is a ...

    "Experience was just a long, infinite, blacktop of things you'd regret not enjoying later." * The world's most experienced (and self-proclaimed) greatest private investigator is back right where we left off at the cliffhanger ending of book two (Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highwa...

    Thank you Netgalley an Atria Books for the ARC. I have to admit, first thing that attracted me to this book was the gorgious cover. Just look at it! And sure enough, once in, the story takes off at full speed. PI Claire gets hit by a car and escapes the ambulance, determined to ...

    Doesn't look at all like my kind of book. Protag is Claire DeWitt, who calls herself the Best Detective in the World. If I saw Claire headed my way, I would cross the street, if not run away. The book opens with a traffic "accident", that Claire thinks was an attempt to murder her. She...

    Claire DeWitt is back, sharp and self deprecating, she breezes through experiences that would flatten anyone of lesser strength. Even when trying to solve mysteries on no sleep while chemically impaired, she prevails. Her story opens on the mean streets of Oakland, and I must admit...

    There?s a tiny moment in the middle of INFINITE BLACKTOP I liked so much that it made me stop reading, and ask myself why. Not just why do I love this passage, but why do I love fiction, why do I love reading, what?s reading fiction even for? These are not small questions to be eli...

    I LOVE Sara Gran's Claire DeWitt novels and I'm so glad there's a new one! These books are dark and twisty, mystical, and just...unusual in ways I can't quite put my finger on. Claire DeWitt is a hot mess, and the suspense is always whether she will survive at all. Although you could r...

    I'm a huge Claire Dewitt fan. My favorite fictional detectives in order are Dewitt, Dirk Gently, Lionel Essrog (Motherless Brooklyn), Hank Palace (Last Policeman), Conrad Metcalf (Gun with Ocassional Music). This was the novel that I thought would answer all the questions about some of...

    I received a copy of this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review. There is a lot going on in this story?from a much younger Claire DeWitt, who?s childhood friend goes missing, to a more experienced Claire DeWitt that someone is trying to kill. Then there is the Claire DeWi...

    This a great addictive series that I want never to end. Claire DeWitt is brilliant, edgy, hard boiled, funny and truely in a class by herself. Three mysteries three different time periods, some are solved some are not but it's the journey that makes it all worthwhile. A genre bending s...

    Read it and wanted to return to page one and start it all over again because it was so good, so brilliant, so genre defying and I know there are so many layers I missed on the first reading. I love this series. there is nothing else like it. It is unique and addictive. ...

    I received a copy of this from the goodreads giveaway. Thank you! I love Claire DeWitt and after I read the first two books in the series, I thought I remembered reading that Sara Gran wasn't going to write anymore. So glad that either I imagined reading that or she changed her mind! I...

    I don?t know if I?m getting more generous with my 5-star reviews or just more in love with this series, but either way... this is an amazing book. Sad and lovely and weird and full of sentences I had to re-read because they were so true and heartbreaking. Claire?s beloved Silette...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A fairly complicated novel about the search for family, only with three different narratives, one of them a Nancy Drew like teen sleuth. I was reminded of HellCat from Marvel comics, a character that used to be Patsy Walker, a teen humor fe...

    Fantastic! I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. Honestly, I had never heard of the Claire DeWitt series before, so I got the first two books - and they were awesome. This one, though,...just...wow. I loved it. I hope there will be more to this series! ...

    Best book cover ever! I have waited forever for another Claire DeWitt book. I preordered this to have it as soon as possible. I read it in one sitting right after unwrapping it. First, let me say I loved the first two books but they were not without flaws. I hate all of the Stilette qu...

    I?m pretty sure Claire DeWitt is my spirit animal?without the drug abuse and self-destructive behavior, of course. I?m not even going to try and get out of this one. I knew I needed to read this book just based on that cover. I mean?wow!! If that doesn?t catch your eye I d...

    I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway, and I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy. I'm giving Infinite Blacktop 2.5 stars. This was my first Claire DeWitt novel, and while it can serve as a stand alone story I'm sure reading the previous novels she ap...

    I was going to say no one can write a mystery like Sara Gran, but really no one writes a BOOK like Sara Gran. She writes in our world, but with a fantastical tilt. Not magic, but just this side of it. Claire DeWitt is one of the best detectives in fiction today. My only complaint is th...

    Sara Gran is a completely new author to me with The Infinite Blacktop being my first foray into her books. This is the third book in the Claire DeWitt series of novels and I don?t think that my enjoyment was diminished by not having read the previous two so much so that I have alread...

    Claire is so weird, I just love her to pieces. Sara Gran nails this particular tone -- this hazy but sharp, deep and ridiculous tone, where Claire looks into your soul, pinches your heart with the truth of all humanity and then twirls off to make some profoundly bad life choice. So...

    Thank you Netgalley an Atria Books for the ARC. I have to admit, first thing that attracted me to this book was the gorgious cover. Just look at it! And sure enough, once in, the story takes off at full speed. PI Claire gets hit by a car and escapes the ambulance, determined to ...

    Doesn't look at all like my kind of book. Protag is Claire DeWitt, who calls herself the Best Detective in the World. If I saw Claire headed my way, I would cross the street, if not run away. The book opens with a traffic "accident", that Claire thinks was an attempt to murder her. She...

    There?s a tiny moment in the middle of INFINITE BLACKTOP I liked so much that it made me stop reading, and ask myself why. Not just why do I love this passage, but why do I love fiction, why do I love reading, what?s reading fiction even for? These are not small questions to be eli...

    I LOVE Sara Gran's Claire DeWitt novels and I'm so glad there's a new one! These books are dark and twisty, mystical, and just...unusual in ways I can't quite put my finger on. Claire DeWitt is a hot mess, and the suspense is always whether she will survive at all. Although you could r...

    I'm a huge Claire Dewitt fan. My favorite fictional detectives in order are Dewitt, Dirk Gently, Lionel Essrog (Motherless Brooklyn), Hank Palace (Last Policeman), Conrad Metcalf (Gun with Ocassional Music). This was the novel that I thought would answer all the questions about some of...

    This a great addictive series that I want never to end. Claire DeWitt is brilliant, edgy, hard boiled, funny and truely in a class by herself. Three mysteries three different time periods, some are solved some are not but it's the journey that makes it all worthwhile. A genre bending s...

    Read it and wanted to return to page one and start it all over again because it was so good, so brilliant, so genre defying and I know there are so many layers I missed on the first reading. I love this series. there is nothing else like it. It is unique and addictive. ...

    I received a copy of this from the goodreads giveaway. Thank you! I love Claire DeWitt and after I read the first two books in the series, I thought I remembered reading that Sara Gran wasn't going to write anymore. So glad that either I imagined reading that or she changed her mind! I...

    I don?t know if I?m getting more generous with my 5-star reviews or just more in love with this series, but either way... this is an amazing book. Sad and lovely and weird and full of sentences I had to re-read because they were so true and heartbreaking. Claire?s beloved Silette...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A fairly complicated novel about the search for family, only with three different narratives, one of them a Nancy Drew like teen sleuth. I was reminded of HellCat from Marvel comics, a character that used to be Patsy Walker, a teen humor fe...

    Fantastic! I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. Honestly, I had never heard of the Claire DeWitt series before, so I got the first two books - and they were awesome. This one, though,...just...wow. I loved it. I hope there will be more to this series! ...

    Best book cover ever! I have waited forever for another Claire DeWitt book. I preordered this to have it as soon as possible. I read it in one sitting right after unwrapping it. First, let me say I loved the first two books but they were not without flaws. I hate all of the Stilette qu...

    I?m pretty sure Claire DeWitt is my spirit animal?without the drug abuse and self-destructive behavior, of course. I?m not even going to try and get out of this one. I knew I needed to read this book just based on that cover. I mean?wow!! If that doesn?t catch your eye I d...

    I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway, and I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy. I'm giving Infinite Blacktop 2.5 stars. This was my first Claire DeWitt novel, and while it can serve as a stand alone story I'm sure reading the previous novels she ap...

    I was going to say no one can write a mystery like Sara Gran, but really no one writes a BOOK like Sara Gran. She writes in our world, but with a fantastical tilt. Not magic, but just this side of it. Claire DeWitt is one of the best detectives in fiction today. My only complaint is th...

    Five million stars. But wait, if I rate this book that high, what does that make Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead? Fucking awesome, of course, but I rated that five stars as well. Yet these were two very different, powerful reads. Since we parted ways with Claire way back ...

    Who tried to kill Claire DeWitt in a hit and run? That's what Claire wants to find out but will there be anything left of her when she finds her would-be killer? A funny thing happened a few days ago. I was driving to work, pondering when/if a new Claire DeWitt book would be coming ...

    Dnf , half way though. I usually do not quit Reading a book this late in the story, but I am totally lost. Maybe my concentration level is off, or at least not sufficient enough to follow the back and forth cases in this book. ...

    Netgalley gave me a copy for review and this was one of the best books I've read all year. Thank you Netgalley! Claire DeWitt is the standard, she is the beginning and also the end of my love of this genre, Claire DeWitt is the queen of my heart, Claire DeWitt is the one. Claire DeW...

    Thank you Netgalley an Atria Books for the ARC. I have to admit, first thing that attracted me to this book was the gorgious cover. Just look at it! And sure enough, once in, the story takes off at full speed. PI Claire gets hit by a car and escapes the ambulance, determined to ...

    Doesn't look at all like my kind of book. Protag is Claire DeWitt, who calls herself the Best Detective in the World. If I saw Claire headed my way, I would cross the street, if not run away. The book opens with a traffic "accident", that Claire thinks was an attempt to murder her. She...

    There?s a tiny moment in the middle of INFINITE BLACKTOP I liked so much that it made me stop reading, and ask myself why. Not just why do I love this passage, but why do I love fiction, why do I love reading, what?s reading fiction even for? These are not small questions to be eli...

    I LOVE Sara Gran's Claire DeWitt novels and I'm so glad there's a new one! These books are dark and twisty, mystical, and just...unusual in ways I can't quite put my finger on. Claire DeWitt is a hot mess, and the suspense is always whether she will survive at all. Although you could r...

    I'm a huge Claire Dewitt fan. My favorite fictional detectives in order are Dewitt, Dirk Gently, Lionel Essrog (Motherless Brooklyn), Hank Palace (Last Policeman), Conrad Metcalf (Gun with Ocassional Music). This was the novel that I thought would answer all the questions about some of...

    I received a copy of this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review. There is a lot going on in this story?from a much younger Claire DeWitt, who?s childhood friend goes missing, to a more experienced Claire DeWitt that someone is trying to kill. Then there is the Claire DeWi...

    This a great addictive series that I want never to end. Claire DeWitt is brilliant, edgy, hard boiled, funny and truely in a class by herself. Three mysteries three different time periods, some are solved some are not but it's the journey that makes it all worthwhile. A genre bending s...

    Read it and wanted to return to page one and start it all over again because it was so good, so brilliant, so genre defying and I know there are so many layers I missed on the first reading. I love this series. there is nothing else like it. It is unique and addictive. ...

    I received a copy of this from the goodreads giveaway. Thank you! I love Claire DeWitt and after I read the first two books in the series, I thought I remembered reading that Sara Gran wasn't going to write anymore. So glad that either I imagined reading that or she changed her mind! I...

    I don?t know if I?m getting more generous with my 5-star reviews or just more in love with this series, but either way... this is an amazing book. Sad and lovely and weird and full of sentences I had to re-read because they were so true and heartbreaking. Claire?s beloved Silette...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A fairly complicated novel about the search for family, only with three different narratives, one of them a Nancy Drew like teen sleuth. I was reminded of HellCat from Marvel comics, a character that used to be Patsy Walker, a teen humor fe...

    Fantastic! I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. Honestly, I had never heard of the Claire DeWitt series before, so I got the first two books - and they were awesome. This one, though,...just...wow. I loved it. I hope there will be more to this series! ...

    Best book cover ever! I have waited forever for another Claire DeWitt book. I preordered this to have it as soon as possible. I read it in one sitting right after unwrapping it. First, let me say I loved the first two books but they were not without flaws. I hate all of the Stilette qu...

    I?m pretty sure Claire DeWitt is my spirit animal?without the drug abuse and self-destructive behavior, of course. I?m not even going to try and get out of this one. I knew I needed to read this book just based on that cover. I mean?wow!! If that doesn?t catch your eye I d...

    I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway, and I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy. I'm giving Infinite Blacktop 2.5 stars. This was my first Claire DeWitt novel, and while it can serve as a stand alone story I'm sure reading the previous novels she ap...

    Thank you edelweiss for a the advance reader copy! Oh god i fucking love claire dewitt. I would have sara grans babies and i am NOT a good pregnant chick... These books are like reading adyashanti or some other Buddhist mystic that wants to give you a beautifully prepared cup of te...

    I was going to say no one can write a mystery like Sara Gran, but really no one writes a BOOK like Sara Gran. She writes in our world, but with a fantastical tilt. Not magic, but just this side of it. Claire DeWitt is one of the best detectives in fiction today. My only complaint is th...

    And so we reach the third instalment of Sara Gran?s terrific series featuring private detective Claire DeWitt, and what a powerhouse of a thriller it is. Tagged as a feminist take on the hardboiled tradition of Raymond Chandler, and described by me on Twitter as ?Nancy Drew on meth...

    I was going to say no one can write a mystery like Sara Gran, but really no one writes a BOOK like Sara Gran. She writes in our world, but with a fantastical tilt. Not magic, but just this side of it. Claire DeWitt is one of the best detectives in fiction today. My only complaint is th...

    And so we reach the third instalment of Sara Gran?s terrific series featuring private detective Claire DeWitt, and what a powerhouse of a thriller it is. Tagged as a feminist take on the hardboiled tradition of Raymond Chandler, and described by me on Twitter as ?Nancy Drew on meth...

    The Infinite Blacktop is the third entry in The Claire DeWitt Mysteries. I read the first two earlier this year and was hooked immediately. Here's why: If you're a reader of traditional modern American private detective novels, series such as Robert Crais's Elvis Cole, Sara Parets...

    Sara Gran is a completely new author to me with The Infinite Blacktop being my first foray into her books. This is the third book in the Claire DeWitt series of novels and I don?t think that my enjoyment was diminished by not having read the previous two so much so that I have alread...

    Who tried to kill Claire DeWitt in a hit and run? That's what Claire wants to find out but will there be anything left of her when she finds her would-be killer? A funny thing happened a few days ago. I was driving to work, pondering when/if a new Claire DeWitt book would be coming ...

    Thank you Netgalley an Atria Books for the ARC. I have to admit, first thing that attracted me to this book was the gorgious cover. Just look at it! And sure enough, once in, the story takes off at full speed. PI Claire gets hit by a car and escapes the ambulance, determined to ...

    Doesn't look at all like my kind of book. Protag is Claire DeWitt, who calls herself the Best Detective in the World. If I saw Claire headed my way, I would cross the street, if not run away. The book opens with a traffic "accident", that Claire thinks was an attempt to murder her. She...

    There?s a tiny moment in the middle of INFINITE BLACKTOP I liked so much that it made me stop reading, and ask myself why. Not just why do I love this passage, but why do I love fiction, why do I love reading, what?s reading fiction even for? These are not small questions to be eli...

    I LOVE Sara Gran's Claire DeWitt novels and I'm so glad there's a new one! These books are dark and twisty, mystical, and just...unusual in ways I can't quite put my finger on. Claire DeWitt is a hot mess, and the suspense is always whether she will survive at all. Although you could r...

    I'm a huge Claire Dewitt fan. My favorite fictional detectives in order are Dewitt, Dirk Gently, Lionel Essrog (Motherless Brooklyn), Hank Palace (Last Policeman), Conrad Metcalf (Gun with Ocassional Music). This was the novel that I thought would answer all the questions about some of...

    I received a copy of this from the goodreads giveaway. Thank you! I love Claire DeWitt and after I read the first two books in the series, I thought I remembered reading that Sara Gran wasn't going to write anymore. So glad that either I imagined reading that or she changed her mind! I...

    I don?t know if I?m getting more generous with my 5-star reviews or just more in love with this series, but either way... this is an amazing book. Sad and lovely and weird and full of sentences I had to re-read because they were so true and heartbreaking. Claire?s beloved Silette...
