"Scoppettone [is] a mystery veteran and one of the best around . . . Her thoughtful musings on love, sex, and long-term commitment will resonate with those of any sexual persuasion, and her characters are all quirky and unique. This one deserves careful reading."
–The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Scoppettone is a sophisticated old pro who writes engagingly and with just the right degree of menace."
