Francis M. Nevins,
Noted mystery writer and critic
This book snaps us back to a time before many of us were born, to the golden age of pulp crime fiction when Chandler and Gardner and Woolrich rode tall in their sadles . . . Both Coxe and Casey are long gone but their books brings them back, as fresh as ever.



J. David Goldin,
"The Man Who Saved Radio"
This is a great book that follow the career of Flashghun Casey for over two decades. The main emphasis is on the radio years, which is o.k. with me. Siegel is a meticulous researcher.



Dick Bertel,
Host of WTIC's Golden Age of Radio broadcast
This is no mere snapshot of Casey, Crime Photographer but a richly detailed portrait that secures the program's rightful place in radio's history.
