Product Details


“For fans of classic hard-boiled whodunits, this is a time machine back to an exuberant era of snappy patter, stakeouts, and double-crosses.” — Publishers Weekly

“A remarkable discovery…fans will rejoice at another dose of Gardner’s unexcelled mastery of pace and an unexpected new taste of his duo’s cyanide chemistry.” — Kirkus Reviews

The Knife Slipped is a gift to aficionados of the Cool and Lam series . . .” - New York Journal of Books

“A treasure that’s not to be missed.” - BookReporter

“Fans of Gardner’s straightforward and terse Perry Mason mysteries are in for a surprise and treat with the abundance of breezy and sarcastic humor found in The Knife Slipped. Like his Mason novels, The Knife Slipped is both fast moving and intricately plotted, but Lam’s first-person narration allows much more freedom for Chandleresque descriptions and smart remarks.” - Shelf Awareness

 “This vintage hardboiled mystery has plenty of sass and energy, with intricate plotting and a delightful parade of suspects. The Knife Slipped is a treat that no mystery fan will want to miss” - Shelf Awareness
