Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Trouble always has a way of finding Isabel Spellman, the snarky, whip-smart sleuth at the heart of Lutz’s best-selling series. Although Izzy has plenty of clients to keep her busy, much of her time is devoted to dealing with the mischievous staff at Spellman Investigations, aka her own family. Her mother and father lack any semblance of professionalism, opting to hide out in their bedroom sipping coffee rather than attending firm meetings (or do much work, for that matter). And Izzy’s sassy younger sister, Rae, has proved herself a master (mistress?) of blackmail and bribes. This time around, however, Izzy’s woes stem not from next of kin but from an uberwealthy former client named Edward Slayter, who’s accused Izzy of embezzlement. Slayter, it turns out, has early-stage Alzheimer’s and is desperate to hide his diagnosis from colleagues and friends. Izzy is doing her best to keep Slayter’s secret—and save her own neck. Many of Lutz’s quirky characters make appearances here, from Izzy’s charming ex-boyfriend (and San Francisco cop) Henry Stone to her brother, David, who’s traded the buttoned-up world of high finance for the demanding—and disheveled—life of a stay-at-home dad. Edgar-nominated Lutz is in fine form, delivering another killer whodunit packed with plot twists and wit. --Allison Block

Review

"[Spellman Six] is Raymond Chandler meets Arrested Development. Zany, witty and full of dark surprises, Lisa Lutz's novel is pure fun-and Izzy Spellman, PI, tops the list of 'Fictional Characters I'd Like to Meet for a Bourbon.'" (Gillian Flynn,#1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl )

“The sly trick of Lisa Lutz’s Spellman novels is that they’re so funny and so smart that you’re taken by surprise by all the insights they offer---about loneliness, about the tumult of love and most of all about the tender chaos of families. Like Raymond Chandler-meets-Salinger’s Glass family, with [Spellman Six], Lutz offers her richest, funniest and most bittersweet Spellman tale to date.” (Megan Abbott, author of THE END OF EVERYTHING and DARE ME )

“Lutz delivers another rollicking good time in her sixth novel.” (Publishers Weekly )

"Edgar-nominated Lutz is in fine form...Another killer whodunit packed with plot twists and wit." (Booklist )

"Lisa Lutz has a delightful knack for being able to combine humor and drama without letting one minimize the impact of the other…If you like your mysteries served up with a generous helping of humor, both subtle and silly, then you are sure to enjoy Lutz's award-winning series.” (Bookreporter.com )

“In the end, good and quirky beats bad and twisted. For a sixth time, Lisa Lutz has made the finding out how so much marvelous fun.” (Baton-Rouge Advocate )

“[Spellman Six] will make you laugh, it’ll make you cry, and it’ll make you feel wiser for having read it. It’s the kind of book you should play hooky to read so that you can savor it in solitude while drinking booze and/or eating ice cream in your pajamas. It’s the kind of book you fall in love with on page one and hope will never end, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll go out and buy yourself a copy right now.” (Crimespree Magazine )

“5 out of 5. I devoured this book in less than 24 hours – it’s hilarious, touching, and the strongest installment of the series to boot. “ (RagingBiblioholism.com )

“Along with its humor, this novel has its share of melancholy, with a surprising and bittersweet ending that nevertheless feels right. Izzy may find it hard to grow up, but Lutz's writing is maturing just fine.” (Self Awareness for Readers )

Praise for THE TRAIL OF THE SPELLMANS

“Private investigator Isabel ‘Izzy’ Spellman is not your typical gumshoe…irreverent… amusing…[Trail of the Spellmans is] a wise (and wise-cracking) choice for mystery readers.” (Booklist )

“Enormously humorous….Lisa Lutz has a distinct flair for comedy. She does an outstanding job introducing fresh and unforgettable characters while painting laugh-out-loud scenes.” (Advocate Weekly )

“Twisted, fun….you can't help but grin.” (St. Louis Dispatch )

“[Lutz] does an outstanding job introducing fresh and unforgettable characters while painting laugh-out-loud scenes…. fresh, lively and consistently humorous.” (Bookreporter.com )

“Lisa Lutz's Spellman books are always hilarious, but Trail of the Spellmans reminded me how serious funny books can be. As precocious as the Spellman kids have always been, they're only now really coming of age and the result is, yes, hilarious, but also tender and melancholy and full of hard-won wisdom. This one's going to stay with readers for a long time.” (Laura Lippman, award-winning author of over 15 books including the recent novel I'd Know You Anywhere and the Tess Monaghan series )

Praise for THE SPELLMANS STRIKE AGAIN

“Lie back and enjoy this tale of intergenerational gumshoe mayhem.”
Kirkus

“[Lutz] delivers another engaging blend of wisecracks and crime-solving.”
Booklist

“Fans of comic mystery who haven’t already discovered the Spellman family series are going to want to read this book and then rush out for the other three. . . If you like Janet Evanovich, you are going to love the Spellmans.” (The Globe and Mail )

Praise for REVENGE OF THE SPELLMANS

“Izzy is off for another wild ride in Lisa Lutz's third madcap private-investigator novel. . . . Izzy's life . . . is so well documented—and she is such an endearing mess—that we want to find the evidence supporting her.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Amazingly, it all makes sense in the end, and Isabel and her quirky family are such good company that you won’t mind even when it doesn’t.”
People Magazine (three stars out of four)

“The end of the Spellmans? Now that should have you on the edge of your seat.”
—New York Daily News

“Congratulations to Lisa Lutz, who has created the Spellmans, the most hilariously dysfunctional family since the Royal Tenenbaums. … Lutz’s style is refreshing and razor-sharp. . . . Revenge continues the good times in this wry, inimitable series.” (Mystery Scene Magazine)

Praise for CURSE OF THE SPELLMANS

“This is one of the best comic novels I've ever read, and that includes Carl Hiaasen and Janet Evanovich. The Spellmans—a collection of misfits whose family business is a private detective agency —are hilarious, smart and irresistible.”
The Globe and Mail

“Fans of The Spellman Files will laugh just as loudly at the comic antics chronicled in this sparkling sequel.”
Publishers Weekly (starred)

“The snappy, honest narration by Get Smart–obsessed Izzy keeps things popping, with its mix of trade talk and brutal honesty.” (Kirkus )

Praise for THE SPELLMAN FILES

“Move over, Carl Hiaasen…. The Spellman Files starts out funny and does not let up… Simply put, this tale of the Spellman family is irresistible, and you hate to see the romp end.”
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Lutz is one smart-mouthed writer, but the genuine surprise of The Spellman Files is that it's almost as touching as it is funny.”
--New York Daily News

“[Isabel Spellman is] the love child of Dirty Harry and Harriet the Spy… It’s not the mystery of how these cases ultimately resolve that will pull readers through, but the whip-smart sass of the story’s heroine, ace detective of her own heart.”
--People

"Hilarious. My enjoyment of The Spellman Files was only slightly undercut by my irritation that I hadn't written it myself. The funniest book I've read in years!" (Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada and Chasing Harry Winston )
