Sylvia Griffin:
“Arnaldo Lopez Jr  takes the reader on an engrossing entertaining thrill ride in Chickenhawk.
In this impressive tome, Mr. Lopez does a masterful job of intertwining mystery, suspense and
drama, resulting in a riveting script that reads incredibly fast and seems to end much too quickly.His genre-bending instant classic is teeming with the perfect assortment of witty, engaging characters, heart-breaking tragedy, and all too familiar situations literally ripped from the pages of everyday life. With a jaundiced, pragmatic eye, Mr. Lopez combines such various elements with seamless precision, and with the refined skill of a true master he redefines the concept of a cliffhanger.”

Sasha Austre – The Queens Tribune:

"The novel is wonderfully vulgar, lending character and authenticity to the story. The book opens on a dastardly, gritty scene that captures the reader from onset."
