Product Details


“Inspector Ramirez returns in The Poisoned Pawn still guided and haunted by visions of crime victims past … the story treads dark and nasty territory, but Blair sidesteps the impulse to wallow in graphic violence by sticking to her characters’ actions and motivations … The Poisoned Pawn shows there is a way to hold onto decency and humanity in the face of the worse criminality.” – National Post

“An affecting series. Even if impoverished and politically oppressed Havana presents unique burdens, Ramirez is not without a sense of humour as he goes about his clever sleuthing.” – Toronto Star

“If you, like me, somehow managed to miss Peggy Blair’s debut novel, The Beggar’s Opera, then you should read this second book and run out to buy the first. Hopefully there’s a third on the way.” – The Globe and Mail

“Two crime novels. Two resounding successes. Peggy Blair proves her debut novel, The Beggar’s Opera was much, much more than beginner’s luck.” – Vancouver Sun

“Blair shows a real flair for character. But it’s the Cuban story that really makes it sing.” – Ottawa Citizen
