Editorial Reviews

. - Bay Windows
Hallowed Murder engulfs the reader from the very first page...This novel is so tightly plotted that every word counts.
.. - Mystery Scene
Hart’s crisp, elegant writing and atmosphere are reminiscent of
the British detective style, but she has a nicer sense of character,
confrontation, and sparsely utilized violence...Hallowed Murder is as
valuable for its mainstream influences as for its sexual politics.
