“Suggest for fans who enjoy humor in the Sherlock Holmes pastiches or readers of Carolyn Hart’s ‘Death on Demand’ mysteries.”
Library Journal

“These books are so much fun and so well-done, it is clear that Delany is in love with her characters as much as her die-hard fans are.”
Suspense Magazine

“Fairly light with plenty of danger and intrigue…Another Sherlock Holmes-inspired treat with a delightful sleuth, deductions, and danger.”
Manhattan Book Review
