Expect to stay up late. It's very hard to put down."--Wichita Falls, TX, Times Record News "The best series now on the market. Try one and tell me I'm wrong."--Stephen King "Peter Robinson is a master."--Tess Gerritsen "A mighty force to be reckoned with in crime fiction."--Publishers Weekly "Robinson's interrogations... have the rare quality of steadily illuminating and thickening both the speakers and their subjects.
