Here’s what other authors have to say:
“Inspector Sullivan is Mike Hammer in space, and he’s fast becoming my favorite sleuth in the sci-fi noir genre. In Gray Sky Blues, his series’ third adventure, K.C. Sivils delivers on enough raw knuckled action, break neck pacing, and colorful descriptions that the reader won’t be able to put down the book until they finish the final page. If you’re a fan of classic pulp noir you’ll like it… if you like sci-fi too then you’ll love it!”
Matt Abraham – author of The Dane Curse
“As usual, K.C. Sivils has guided his main Character, Inspector Thomas Sullivan in a great thriller. Intrigue and suspense rule the day in Grey Sky Blues. This book is a page-turner that will make you stay up at night. Very well done!”
K. Allen Cross – author of Flight of the Hellcat

My short story, Just One Night, has been included in the newly released anthology, Eight in the Chamber.
The anthology is collection of noir styled detective and crime fighting stories with a twist. The stories feature superheroes, the supernatural, or science fiction settings. Just One Night focuses on two characters from my Inspector Thomas Sullivan series, the mysterious Sarah and Father Nathan. Readers will also meet Joe Maynard, owner of Joe’s.
Included in the anthology are two of my favorite novels, modern story tellers who have mastered the noir genre, albeit in a bit different manner than expected, Matt Abraham and Alex P. Berg.

Thomas Sullivan has another case, this one possibly threatening the peace established by the Anti-Cloning Treaty more than thirty years ago. Forced to work with what some would call his nemesis, Sullivan is up to his eyeballs in intergalactic thrills, chills, and mayhem. Unfortunately, due to his own mistakes, he begins to alienate some of his very few friends, resulting in devastating consequences. Last Train to Nowhere by K.C. Sivils is an evolution of the classic good cop/bad cop conflict and reinvents that trope into something totally unique that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.
I had never read an Inspector Thomas Sullivan book before, but he was an interesting character and the book was a thrilling example of what a good story can be. With a mystery/crime drama mixed with science fiction and lightly coated with a noir quality edge, K.C. Sivils is a talented writer able to blend multiple genres and create a story that fans of all of the above genres will enjoy. The narrative flowed very well and it was easy to understand the plot. I felt driven by both the characters and the interwoven plot threads of the story. There were a LOT of characters, but overall the large cast added a really great sense of a bustling world. If you’re looking for something new and different, make sure to give Last Train to Nowhere a shot. I will definitely be returning to try more in the series.

I was both ecstatic and surprised my novel The Predator and The Prey received a 5-Star review from The Reader's Favorite. Sending your novel off for its first editorial review is a bit like sending your child off to school for the very first time. Here's the review:
The Predator and The Prey by Kevin Sivils is a gripping story featuring police inspector Thomas Sullivan and a cast of very compelling characters. Sullivan has had a very dirty past, a past that may catch up with him any time. Now, he’s sent to a new planet to redeem his past, but things become more complicated when a mysterious young woman from that past resurfaces. Sullivan has to solve a series of crimes and his new turf is sprinkled with danger and potholes. Can he trust anyone and can he navigate the complicated setting without giving himself away?
Kevin Sivils’ writing got me hooked from the very first page. I enjoyed the intelligent dialogues, well crafted to build character and plot. The conflict is introduced from the very beginning of the story and the reader understands the dilemmas which investigators are caught up with, but as one reads on, it becomes more complex, and the author explores deeper levels of conflict, especially the psychological conflict communicated through a stream of consciousness that is as absorbing as it is entertaining. The Predator and The Prey features very compelling characters, including an ex-con who works as a cabbie, a priest who seems more corrupt than a con man, and many others.
The writing is excellent, punctuated with powerful descriptions. There is a pervading sense of suspense that makes the reader ache to know what happens next. For instance, I couldn’t help longing to find out more about the mysterious young woman and to see what would happen between her and the main protagonist. The action is intense, making it impossible to put the story aside. This is a great read for anyone looking for something entertaining and fun in the area of police investigation, crime, and redemption.
