"Once again, an Irishman's take on post-9/11 NY, with a multi-culti slant and an emphasis on cricket. Rave critical reviews (reportedly Barak Obama loves it too). Mixed reader reviews -- not a page-turner."
"This one also gets very mixed reader reviews, but I think I'd like it. A colleague of mine also thinks I'd like it (although she and I rarely like the same books). My pickiest book club friend did not like it."
"I'm very interested in reading this one, but will have to do so on the sly. Opens with death by peanut, as the title & the cover's death-head together suggest. (The husband is accused, and the book goes on to explore his marriage as well as the marriages of the two detectives.) Probably not a good idea to have 3 copies of this floating around Woodloch Pines."
