Praise for the earlier Karen Pelletier mysteries:
The Northbury Papers:
"One of the year’s best mysteries."
"Few are better than Dobson at recording the minutiae of academic committee-speak, power plays in body language and jargon, and what ignites a classroom."
–Booklist (starred review)
"An attractive heroine with the courage and wit to take on the toughest adversaries."
–Dallas Morning News
"The mystery is not easy to solve and the ending is a surprise."
Quieter Than Sleep:
"A genuinely good read."
–Time Out New York
"A fine debut; a book that is true to its scene and a pleasure to read."
"A literate and absorbing novel with an ingratiating main character and intriguing setting…a smashing debut. Don’t miss this one."

"Deftly balancing its literary and mystery elements, Dobson’s debut sparkles with wit and insight into college politics."
