Fabulous Fiction Firsts #178
Patrick Anderson of the The Washington Post thought it "Witty, sophisticated, suspenseful and endless fun -- a novel to be savored by people who know and love good crime fiction, and the best first novel I've read this year."
Marilyn Stasio of The New York Times praised Dolan's gift of storytelling.
Publishers Weekly liked that "Dolan gets everything right in his debut. . . . Pitch-perfect prose and sophisticated characterizations drive the noirish plot, which offers plenty of unexpected twists."
And where would Dolan set this mystery? Where else?
