--Midwest Book Review
"This 'who-done-it' has cops, a surprise ending, great dialog, and stunning vistas. This is the kind of book to dive into in front of a fire or to take on a plane and tune everything out."
--Tradicion Revista Magazine"
"Marie Romero Cash writes about Santa Fe with a local's razor-sharp insights, and peoples her exciting mystery with a gallery of colorful, authentic New Mexico characters. The plot moves with the speed and force of a Southwestern thunderstorm."
--Kirk Ellis, Co-Executive Producer/Screenwriter, HBO's John Adams
"Shadows among the Ruins is a great read whose real characters and honest dialog capture the intrigue of New Mexico. Throw in a great plot with a surprise ending, and mystery lovers will be clamoring for the sequel. Marie Romero Cash has taken the gift for prose she demonstrated in Lowrider Blues and applied it to the mystery genre with spectacular results."
--J. Michael Orenduff, Author, The Pot Thief Murder Mystery Series
"Shadows among the Ruins will compel some Southwestern mystery writers take another look at their own work. Marie Cash made me sit up and take notice. Her come-along plot made me miss dinner, but it was worth it. Now, after I get something to eat, I'm going to read it again. You have to like this book."
--Forrest Fenn, Santa Fe resident and owner of San Lazaro Pueblo, the setting for Shadows. He has written eight books on history, art, and archaeology.
