Editorial Reviews

"Blechta wastes not a minute in laying out this compact, sharply focused tale."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Unique? Absolutely. This is a mystery...that will have you, like me, reading it in one sitting. Interesting and well developed characters, a serious crime, a need to solve it as quickly as possible, and a believable and satisfactory conclusion."

"In less than two hundred pages Toronto author Rick Blechta has created a cracking good mystery, one that will challenge and entertain readers until the final pages...Blechta writes with the assurance and ease we have come to expect from this accomplished author. A fine read."
