Matt first asked me to review his book, Murder, Revenge, Betrayal
– A Comedy, I wasn’t sure I could lie well enough to
pull it off, but as soon as the check cleared I realized Ulmer has
written one of the best comedic novels in years. I honestly
couldn’t stop laughing from the moment I flipped the cover open,
and it had nothing to do with the laughing gas that sprayed from the
inside of the binding.
Jennings, Book Reviewer, The Imaginary Times:
Ulmer brings a unique new voice to the literary world. His fresh
story ideas and clever phrasing help create a vivid world with lively,
eccentric characters and crackling, hilarious dialogue. The words
jump off the page to bring you some of the most fun you’ll have
reading a book all year. Truly sensational.
Thomas Wheatly, Scribe Reviewer, Ye Olde York Times:
In a dark age such as this, it is most rewarding to discover a young lad penning a scripture not of slavery or tea, but of good olde fashioned murder and betrayal. I say "tally ho," young Ulmer. "Tally ho."
Yearly Must List:
Ulmer’s first novel is a stunning rookie attempt. With
countless pop culture references and brilliant homages to classic films
and literature, Murder, Revenge, Betrayal – A Comedy
accomplishes the extraordinary. It simultaneously appeals to
teenage kids and stuck up literary types. It is a comedy, it is a
drama, it is a detective story, and it is a satire.

Matt is my son and I will always love him no matter what.

I never would have expected a silly comedy to have such an
emotional core. The ending is actually quite powerful.

I laughed until it hurt. And then I cried because it hurt. So I guess you could say I laughed until I cried.
