Reviews:

“...a subtly provocative procedural mystery ... characters are examined in such depth and detail that the motive eventually uncovered for the murder makes perfect, if perfectly horrid, sense.” – The New York Times Book Review

...With sly, affectionate humor and acute insight, this is a flawless mystery ... A complex, fully satisfying resolution wraps up this masterful American debut. – Publishers Weekly
