Publishers Weekly said of his second thriller, Darkness Lane, "Kies neatly balances breathless action with Geneva Chase's introspection and sleuthing savvy." Publishers Weekly said of his fifth book, Whisper Room, "Readers will hope to see a lot more of the down-to-earth Geneva...Sara Paretsky fans will find much to like."
