"Stanley brings 1940s San Francisco to life with her meticulously detailed, hard-boiled novel ... It's neonoir in a classical five-act structure, starring one of crime's most arresting heroines: angry, big-hearted, and fearless Miranda Corbie." - Library Journal (starred review)
"Miranda continues to fight the good fight in Hammett's San Francisco, making Sam Spade proud and giving readers a treat." - Barbara Bibel, Booklist
"A superb mystery, a noir tale of high order ... This novel rings across the decades with an eerie truth." - T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times Bestselling Author
"Lean and mean, Kelli Stanley's gritty 1940s-set mystery series gives readers a compelling snapshot of the past--a past as smart, complex and jaded as her lead character, female P.I. Miranda Corbie. A razor-sharp, tightly-plotted noir page-turner." - Allison Brennan, New York Times Bestselling Author
"Kelli Stanley is a writer who knows her place. It's mid-20th century San Francisco, same place Hammett knew, and with a detective as unique and unyielding. If you haven't been reading Kelli Stanley you've been making a mistake and it's time to do yourself a favor: Grab up this book." - S. J. Rozan, Edgar-winning author of Ghost Hero
