"Muller undoubtedly remains one of today's best mystery writers."--Associated Press "Muller has created a delicious mixture of adventure, action, altruism, pathos with a touch of humor, and romance thrown in to build a massive base of loyal fans . . . She is one of those rare series authors who never lets her characters grow stale or trite."--BookReporter.com "Muller has displayed a knack both for keeping the series fresh and for allowing her character to grow..., Muller's series remains a gold standard for female detective stories."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review on Locked In "A plot so imaginative that readers will have no choice but to sit down and settle in for an exciting read they will not forget...The action never slows down, as the two investigators and their employees find themselves dead center in the middle of a truly bizarre group of folks that the reader will never forget.
