'Lisa Scottoline has been added to my short list for must-read-authors. Her stories are filled with teeth-gnashing suspense, her characters are compelling, and her humor cuts to the heart of the issue with laser-like accuracy.' Janet Evanovich 'Lisa Scottoline's greatest skill, and it is a remarkable one indeed, is to make the domestic incident, the small characters, and moments come to life and ring absolutely true.'
