Out of the Gutter magazine has some kind words to say about Bitter Water Blues.
"Bagley has penned a great book and if [Bitter Water Blues] is any indication, seems destined for big things in the future. A lover of noir would be served well to jump on this train right out of the station and enjoy the ride Bagley is sure to take them on in the upcoming years. This is a strong offering right out of the station."
