Praise

“I love this man. I want to eat blintzes with him and talk about macular degeneration all day. What I’m trying to say is: This is a seriously funny book.” —A.J. Jacobs, bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically and Drop Dead Healthy

“[A] truly fine detective novel. . . . Startling . . . Moving . . . An offbeat beauty.” —Booklist (starred review)
 
“A quick joy. . . . Harry is an eminently likeable character, and his narration is funny and engaging.” —The A. V. Club
 
“A book to ponder, as well as to enjoy.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“We admittedly enjoy the cool wave of Nordic crime fiction hitting our shores. But for a change of pace . . . look to sunny Florida, [and] private eye Harry Lipkin.” —New York Post

“Harry Lipkin is the genuine article.” —The Christian Science Monitor

“[Harry Lipkin] is a delightful creation—Philip Marlowe in his late eighties, should he have ever reached them, channeled through Walter Matthau with a touch of George Burns.” —Eurocrime

“Harry gets the job done—as does Fantoni, whose great Jewish humor and astutely detailed observation create a tale that rips along at a pace which Lipkin’s hips can only remember with fondness.” —The Independent (London)

“A good deal of gentle fun.” —Kirkus Reviews
