Praise for THE STRANGER YOU SEEK (Keye Street 1)"An explosive, unpredictable, and psychologically complex thriller." Publishers Weekly"The best private eye debut since Dennis Lehane's A Drink Before the War."-The Plain DealerSTRANGER IN THE ROOM (Keye Street 2)"The tension buzzes like cicadas on a hot Georgia night and the pace is relentless." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer"Williams keeps the suspense taut and the humor snarky." The Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionDON'T TALK TO STRANGERS (Keye Street 3)"An explosive read... Amanda Kyle Williams sets the classic private eye novel on fire." -Lee Child"Readers will empathize with this flawed but gutsy detective." Publishers Weekly "All the twists and turns readers of Williams have come to expect..." Kirkus ReviewsKEYE STREET"Keye Street immediately puts herself in the top echelon of suspense heroes. She is brutally funny and powerfully human-one of the most realistic protagonists in crime fiction that I've had the thrill to read."-Tess Gerritsen"Street is a unique and worthy addition to the rich tradition of damaged and tough private detectives."-Associated Press.Amanda Kyle Williams returned to writing after some small press books and a break of more than a decade. "It takes time and practice to find your own voice as a writer and for that voice to reach pitch. It takes time to bring to life that special character. For me, Keye Street is that character. She's flawed. She jokes as a way to avoid intimacy. She wrestles her own demons, her past with alcohol, losing her job at the Bureau. And she's a total Krispy Kreme doughnut addict. She feels real to me. She's the voice in my head." The Stranger You Seek is Amanda's first mainstream crime thriller and the first book in the Keye Street series. In order to lend authenticity to her Keye Street series, she took courses geared to law enforcement in practical homicide investigation and criminal profiling, worked with a PI firm in Atlanta on surveillance operations, became a court appointed process server and consulted with professionals in bond and law enforcement. Ms. Williams lives near Atlanta, is active in the humane community as a founding director for Lifeline Animal Project in Atlanta, Georgia.Amanda is currently at work on the next Keye Street thriller.
