“One of the best in the mystery-suspense field."--The Washington Post Book World
“Pronzini is a pro at PI Fiction: he never cheats on the reader, respecting the conventions of the hard-boiled detective stories and puzzle mysteries he employs so well.”--Library Journal on Schemers
“Pronzini is justly celebrated as a chronicler of San Francisco, but this novel also showcases his deft touch with interiors—how an unmade bed, the stench of cigarette smoke, or an antiseptically clean and empty home can say volumes about the tail ends of desperate lives. Another Pronzini winner.”—Booklist on Fever
“Pronzini is a greatly gifted storyteller who never fails to deliver topflight entertainment.”--The San Diego Union-Tribune on Fever
