Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
“Fiendishly funny ... Smart dialogue, clever plotting, and a perfectly executed reverse scam by Hastings result in sparkling entertainment.”
Kirkus Reviews
“As usual, Hall, like Rumplestiltskin, takes slender material that would serve another writer for a middling short story and spins a gossamer web of riddles by turns puzzling, suspenseful, and hilarious.”
Deadly Pleasures
“Hall weaves a tale worth of a Golden Age writer, with as many puzzles in one book as one is likely to find in four or five modern mysteries.”
Marilyn Stasio
“What Mr. Hall does to the private-eye formula is very funny, but it is not frivolous. His puzzles, for all their manic nonsense, are fiendish constructions of sound logic.”
Phil Thomas
"SCAM easily is the best of the 12 mysteries Parnell Hall has written that feature Stanley Hastings...The novel has an extremely well-made plot that twists and turns so wildly that the reader begins to wonder how Hall is ever going to work everything out satisfactorily. Hall does, of course, and most satisfyingly."
New York Times Book Review - Marilyn Stasio
“What Mr. Hall does to the private-eye formula is very funny, but it is not frivolous. His puzzles, for all their manic nonsense, are fiendish constructions of sound logic.”
