Praise

New York Times Book Review
"[Benedict writes] with the lyrical exactitude of Henry Thoreau on a metaphysical field trip to hell" - Marilyn Stasio

Bloomsbury Review
"No ordinary thriller, 'Dogs of God' creates a sense of place that few could convey with such savage, lyrical suspense."

Literary Review
"This is a ferocious tale in every sense, and Pinckney Benedict skillfully manages to prevent the complex plot from running out of control." July 1995

(unknown)
"Superb narrative drive and full vision--delightful and exciting. Young Benedict joins Jayne Anne Philips and Breece D'J Pancake as one of the considerable literary forces of what should be a proud West Virginia." - Barry Hannah

(unknown)
"An invocation of dark, chthonic forces, a book which almost literally takes no prisoners. It's a page turner for sure, but also worth reading slowly. The elaborate, gorgeous writing here lives up to the best of Benedict's wonderful short stories, though it goes at a pace to outdo most thrillers." - Madison Smartt Bell
