Praise

It’s a Crime is so lilting and witty that the sorrow at its heart creeps in on stocking feet. Jacqueline Carey is an original, and this is her unforgettable take on our ethically challenged times.”–Deirdre McNamer, author of Red Rover

“If Jay Gatsby and Nancy Drew had had a baby, its take on twenty-first-century American corruption and denial might be as trenchant as Jacqueline Carey’s, but I doubt it.”–Roy Blount, Jr., author of Long Time Leaving

“Rarely does a novel come along with so much ebullient wit, such ethical clarity, and so many beautiful flowers. Jacqueline Carey takes on white-collar crime, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and the nagging question of forsythias with equal fascination and agility. It’s a Crime is satirical, lyrical, full of heart, and a joy to read.”–Cathleen Schine, author of The New Yorkers

“A witty, original look at the way we live now.”—Meg Wolitzer, author of The Ten-Year Nap

“This journey down the rabbit hole is not your mother’s crime fiction, but in the shadow of Wall Street’s current upheavals, it’s oddly not that far-fetched.”—Boston Globe
 
“Carey’s reflections on executive-suite malfeasance are clever, not to mention timely.”—New York Times Book Review
 
“In this ripped-from-the-headlines satire, Carey skewers corporate culture and its insidious effects.”—Marie Claire
 
It’s a Crime is a sharp and funny commentary on the times we live in, and on the high cost of self-absorption.“—Chicago Tribune
