"There are so many subgenres of crime fiction, all with their own traditions and tropes, that mastering any one of them could entail a lifetime of writing. But in The System, Ryan Gattis seems to capture the lion’s share of them. His fifth novel powerfully illuminates every corner of the law-and-order universe—from drive-by shootings to cops to courts, from corrections officers to parole agents and beyond.

—Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times
