Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
“With a fond eye for the eccentric, Gray gives the streets of Hell's Kitchen the air of a gritty English village.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“Deftly plotted and well-paced ... Two wonderful sleuths make their debut”
The Drood Review of Mystery
“Weaves a wondrous web of work relationships shrouded by ghosts of a long-ago scandal... In the classic British cozy tradition right down to the body with the antique dagger in its chest.
The Virginian-Pilot & The Ledger-Star
“Gray has the rare talent of being able to combine humor with sensitivity, and high comedy with realistic portrayals of genuine people.”
