Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The likable protagonist of this creditable first novel is Quint McCauley, a middle-aged ex-cop recently jilted by his 23-year-old lover. McCauley is head of security for Hauser's, a large Chicago department store. Preston Hauser, president of the store, has been receiving threatening letters, and asks McCauley to quietly investigate. At a meeting with McCauley in his office, Preston takes his daily vitamins--and dies: the capsules were laced with cyanide. McCauley tells Preston's wife, Diana, a fetching kleptomaniac, that she is a widow; she finds the news hilarious and tries to seduce him. McCauley resists; he has recently become roommates with Elaine Kluszewski. He and Elaine investigate the various Hauser's executives that Preston had suspected of writing the letters. Brod's settings and dialogue are realistic and believable, more than making up for a repetitive running gag on the difficulty of parking in Chicago. Despite the obvious flag or two pointing the way to the guilty doorstep, this hard-boiled first-in-a-series is solid, satisfying fare. (Aug.)
Library Journal
A comfortable, conversational tone, everyday narrator/detective, and dollops of Chicago action accompany Brod's solid first novel. Shortly after ex-cop Quint McCauley, head of security for Hauser's department store, agrees to investigate death threats received by Hauser, Hauser dies of cyanide poisoning. McCauley continues his search among a standard array of suspects (e.g., a juicy, much younger wife) despite further murders, attempts on his own life, and loss of job. Not much out of the ordinary, but promising nonetheless.

    A Great Mystery

    A former policeman now working in a high end department store as Security Chief. He is asked by store's owner to look into the threatening letters he's been receiving.. Many twists and turns in this well written book - breakup with girlfriend,poison and of course, murder. This is a good old fashioned whodunit and it kept me interested until finished.

    I enjoyed this fun, easy read. While it wasn't too challenging, it still offered up several possible scenarios for the bad guy. It had a mild noir feel to it too which I liked a lot.

    Eh, It was not bad.

    The book was good but to me it was not that intriguing and interesting. I knew who the murderer was before page 100.

    Enjoyable

    I really liked this mystery - was definitely a page-turner & kept my interest. The characters were realistic & Quint was quite likeable. I will probably look into some of the authors other works.

    Great light noir mystery

    In the tradition of a taciturn, heavy smoking gumshoe confronted by the stunning troubled dame, Quintus McCauley is compelled to prove whether Diana Hauser killed her rich husband, Preston or is being framed. In a great departure the female characters are strong and intelligent with much to add to the story. While not an Agatha Christie this is still a satisfying whodunit with a twist. I look forward to reading more about Quint and Elaine and their evolving partnership.

    On side note I appreciated the lack of graphic sex, violence, and crude language. Love being able to share my favorite reads with my teens!

    This is a good, clean mystery

    Quint McCauley, head of security at a major Chicago store, has to deal with the wife of the owner, who delights in shop-lifting in her own store. When called into Preston Hauser's office, he thinks it's because of Preston's wife, Diana. However, Preston has been receiving threatening notes, and he wants Quint to investigate, on the QT. Shortly thereafter, Preston drops dead, in Quint's presence, from a poisoned vitamin pill. Quint decided to continue the hunt for the note-sender, and hopefully, the killer.

    Diana, of course, is prime suspect because she's the pretty young wife, of a very rich, older man. Quint, finds that she's not the only one who would benefit from Preston's death, and it's a convoluted investigation that ensues before the real culprit is found.

    I love a mystery, and this is a good one.

    Pure fun!

    Loved this book from the first page, which was so unexpected that i had to read it twice. Very short (only 200 pages) but still the author was able to produce an entertaining and well-developed story. Lots of twists and turns and so many unscrupulous characters that you dont know who is guilty of what until the end. Definitely worth the time!

    Slow

    I couldnt get into it. Got to page 53 and gave up. Too slow and too many mundane details to spark any interest with me.
