December 2012 Indie Next List
“Roorbach has given readers a totally unique family saga that is infused with love, sex, and murder. This is the kind of story that takes you on a journey from the very first page and races right along to the unforgettable conclusion. I was drawn in by the characters, both sympathetic and despicable. This is a great book to recommend to everyone.”
— Barbara Kelly, Portland Bookstore, University of Southern Maine, Portland, ME
A wildly entertaining novel of murder, seduction, and revenge, "Life Among Giants" tracks a larger-than-life Gatsby-esque quest for answers that reveals how sometimes the greatest mystery lies in knowing one's own heart.
