Editorial Reviews


Praise for J. Robert Janes
“Cleverly structured . . . Janes does his usual solid job.Publishers Weekly on Carnival
“The arch chemistry between the two competitive sleuths, the smattering of German and French, and the measured unfolding of the well-appointed plot all give St-Cyr and Kohler's 15th case a faint flavor of Poirot.” Kirkus Reviews on Carnival
“[Janes] weaves a subtle, character-driven plot, stylishly written and long on twists.” Kirkus Reviews on The Sleeper
“Absorbing . . . Janes continues to address how ‘the everyday common crimes of murder, arson and the like’ were investigated during the Nazi occupation of France. . . . As in the best historical whodunits, the effective insertion of minor details . . . goes a long way to bringing the reader into the story.” Publishers Weekly on Clandestine
“An enthralling, character-propelled new police procedural.” —Kirkus Reviews on Bellringer
