"In The Labcoat, Larry Soderquist has brought new depth to the academic novel, investing it with a moral level it has not often had, and making use of his own experience to create a story that should have wide appeal. A natural storyteller, Soderquist makes his novelistic debut with a bang. May The Labcoat be the first of many novels."
"Wonderfully magnetic. Draws the reader in and holds on tight."
–Robert K. Tanenbaum
"The Labcoat, a precise, neat book, a pleasure to read. His protagonist, Eric Berg, combines plodding police procedure and a good understanding of basic criminology with unique insight into the general human condition. The Labcoat accurately describes the sometimes vicious skullduggery common on the current university campus."
"The Labcoat, held my interest from start to finish. A fine debut, I hope to see more of Eric Berg."
"An intriguing view from the other side of the ivy."
–Michael A. Kahn
"Soderquist knows the academic scene like few mystery writers, and he pulls the reader willingly into its dark side. A clever and thought-provoking book."
–Robert C. Clark
"Adroit dialogue, combined with just the right detail, draws the reader into the aura of academe. The Labcoat is just plain good fun, but not fluff. There's real meat here, portraying an absorbing struggle between law and morality."
–Timothy J. Sullivan
