"One Dead, Two To Go is smart, page-turning fun, with the most feisty and likable P.I. since Kinsey Millhone. Looking for your next favorite detective series? Look no further."
--Deb Caletti, National Book Award finalist and author of He's Gone
"Private eye Eddie Shoes and her cardsharp mother plunge the reader into a tale of fractured relationships, mayhem, and thrills. I look forward to the next Eddie Shoes adventure!"
--Deborah Turrell Atkinson, author of the Storm Kayama Mysteries
"The writing is cinematic and vivid, the characters well-drawn, but the dynamic between Eddie and Chava, which reminded me fondly of Cagney and Lacey, is what makes the story. Fans of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich should definitely check out One Dead, Two to Go. Recommended."
--Max Everhart, author of the Eli Sharpe Mystery series
"Unlike the standard-issue PI, Eddie seems allergic to guns and violence and worries about a bad haircut as much as the stalking danger. Funny, clever, and full of grabbing plot twists....This is a fast, memorable and entertaining read. Warning: you'll want more."
--Scott Driscoll, author of Better You Go Home
"Mystery, murder and mayhem collide in this intriguing new series! An original, well written gum-shoe, readers will find an easy ebb and flow of sequences with just enough mystery to keep them guessing. From their strained past to their bumbling investigation skills, this quirky combination of a mother-daughter reunion turned crime-fighting duo will captivate readers.... Avid Alphabet series connoisseurs should flock to this kick-off series."
--Roberta Gordon for InD'Tale Magazine
