Lambda Literary Award WINNER 2006
"Fans of Martinelli will find much to enjoy…. [Martinelli’s] contented home life contrasts nicely with the grim details of her job."—Seattle Times
"[A] cohesive, compelling, wildly original narrative…. King works the story-within-a-story concept exceptionally well. But the best thing about The Art of Detection is Kate [Martinelli]…. and the book’s upbeat and hugely satisfying ending reminds us that there are simply not enough Kate Martinelli books to go around."—Miami Herald
"Sometimes a mystery takes one’s breath away with its impeccable, inexorable logic. King makes two such tales here, whose wheels interlock with a perfect, audible click…. A tour-de-force and a great read."—Booklist, starred review
