Claire Foster of ForeWord Reviews –
“A breathless, fast-paced novel of obsession, greed, and deeply buried secrets, Driller is an intense, fulfilling read that pushes extremes of language and landscape.”
Michael Radon of US Review of Books –
“Set almost entirely in some of the remotest parts of Mexico, this pseudo-Western thriller plays out in one suspenseful reveal after the other. Written in a clipped, confident manner that is reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy, this story is engrossing and difficult to put down.”
Midwest Book Review –
A riveting read from beginning to end, Driller clearly demonstrates M. S. Holm’s truly exceptional storytelling talents.”
Kirkus Reviews –
“Remarkable for its linguistic acrobatics and hardscrabble charisma.”
