Praise

“Addictively enjoyable…. An Agatha Christie whodunit as written by Carl Hiaasen.” —The New York Times Book Review“Deliciously sharp, wise and hilarious. . . .A fast-moving whodunit.” —Los Angeles Times “Darnton delivers a well-turned whodunit that reads like The Front Page with additional reporting by Evelyn Waugh…. It’s a great read.” —USA Today “[An] entertaining evocation of life-and death-in a contemporary newsroom…. Fast-paced, well-written, [and] often very funny.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer "Who killed the editor? A venerable New York newspaper becomes a crime scene in this multifaceted, gloriously entertaining thriller… Tingling suspense powered by Darnton’s love for his battered profession." —Kirkus, starred review "A rollicking newsroom farce." —Keir Graff, Booklist"William Randolph Hearst meets Agatha Christie… Loaded with subtle social commentary and wry humor, this highly intelligent whodunit will keep readers guessing." —Publishers Weekly"What a great ride. Think of Evelyn Waugh’s Scoop and Ben Hecht’s Front Page and add a murder thriller that gives insight into the workings of a great newspaper. It should be required reading for anyone who cares about news and what’s happening to it." —Nick Pileggi"This may be the most entertaining novel about newspapers since Michael Frayn’s The Tin Men." —Joseph Lelyveld"A mystery with as many heart-thumping twists and turns as a roller coaster." —Ken Auletta
