"I don't like horror novels. I don't much care for the fantasy genre. And buckets of gore put me off. So how come I read two of these books? I'll be honest with you: I was sort of trapped into it (don't ask). And what do you know, I loved them, notwithstanding the above. First of all, Goldberg and Rabkin are keen observers and fine writers. Exposition, dialogue, plotting, description . . . they're all first-rate: economical, coherent, and convincing. And Mathew Cahill is a genuinely intriguing character. And--to my surprise--darned if the books aren't funny. To put it in a nutshell, I simply couldn't put them down. No, really, I mean it. Literally. Once I started, I read each one through in a single night, which isn't usual for me. And now I'm hooked on the series. My God, what's happening to me?"--Aaron Elkins best selling author of The Worst Thing
