Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
"Ms. Meyers, who once worked for director Harold Prince, provides plenty of dish to keep readers who are either in the know or out of the loop laughing up their sleeve. … the juiciest of her five witty mysteries featuring Leslie Wetzon, the ethical half of Smith & Wetzon, a Wall Street headhunting firm."
Publishers Weekly
"Theatre Buffs will have fun trying to identify the real-life characters behind her fictional ones."
Sun Sentinel
"With a savvy, sassy style and an excellent ear for dialogue, Annette Meyers can boast of having one of the brightest, most entertaining series with her Smith and Wetzon mysteries… Meyers is among that handful of authors who have taken the mystery genre beyond its traditional boundaries."
Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine
"Annette Meyers has created one of the most fascinating and entertaining series featuring a female amateur sleuth on bookstore shelves these days."
