The H. L. Mencken Murder: A Literary Thriller Paperback – May 10, 2016
There's a dusty-attic charm to Mr. Swaim's evocations ofbookshops past, and he couldn't have enticed a livelier ghost to Mencken tohaunt them. --The New York Times
The colorful cast, quotes from Mencken, evocations of the book stores and other treasures lost to progress add nostalgic appeal to Swaim's dandy mystery. --Publishers Weekly.
Swaim has a fine-tuned ear and eye for the language and lookof the street and the period. There's a bit too much of both here, though,along with feverish plotting and spindly motivation; but nostalgia fans,Mencken admirers, and book-lovers reminded of one-time pleasures and treasureswon't complain. An original and imaginative debut. --Kirkus Reviews
If you like whodunits, you will like The H.L. Mencken Murder Case. Even if you do not particularly care for them, but are only a Mencken buff, you will find it an entertaining piece of Mencken lore. --Menckeniana Quarterly Review
