Seymour Shubin, NY Times Bestselling Author of Anyone’s My Name writes, "Two Bits offers an unusual mix of hardboiled writing and laughs, along with a good look into a dark side of the movie business and criminal minds. And topping it all is a stunning twist of an ending."

Washington, DC author Tony Cheatham writes, "With Two Bits, Gaige has crafted a disturbingly humorous crime anchored work where the characters come to life like the usual suspects in a police lineup. The story flows with all the detail and dialogue of a police report. A great work from an author who seems to have one hand typing on the computer while the other one is handcuffed to the bars of a jail cell."

“As this reviewer read TWO BITS, the movie The Sting came to mind, but not just the mob and the con connection. Like that superb movie, this wonderful novel is amusing, at times gritty and definitely darker than the film, and stars a delightful assortment of Runyonesque characters. Still in the end Clint Gaige's strong tale peels down to Archie and Pat, opponents who make for a fine gambol for readers.” -Harriet Klausner

Midwest Book Review writes, "In the vein of Leonard’s Get Shorty, and Newman’s The Sting, Two Bits is a fine work of cleverly crafted fiction. Gaige invokes anticipation in the reader with fingernail biting vigor. He knows how to move the story at breakneck speed utilizing his host of unusual and savory characters. Tension, it’s in there. Action, it’s in there. Satisfaction, it’s in there."
