"A fast-paced read."

"First novelist Schanker wields a mighty pen...dramatic action and a powerful blend of race, religion, politics, and legal procedure."
--Library Journal

"Nora's harsh, uncompromising voice [is] something new and welcome in the genre."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The writing is superb...Nora is tough, loud, pushy and the perfect antidote for readers overdosed on the blood and guts of noir or the sugary niceness of today's cozies...Add D. R. Schanker to your list of favorite new authors."

"Brilliantly developed...authentic...Nora is one of the genre's best new characters."
--Harriet Klausner

The book had a good start, but I found the main character to be very annoying. She kept referring to herself as a big boned woman, and opened almost every chapter with this mentioned. Give it a rest already! I had to force myself to finish this book.
