Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Stasio
“Hall’s deadpan style of satire makes mincemeat out of the pretentious author and his entourage of cynical agents, editors, and publicists, each of whom keeps telling Stanley (in hilariously abusive dialogue) what a lousy novel his case would make. Rising above their contempt, the sad-sack detective plods along after his clients, dodging razors and bombs, and picking up enough hot dish on the publishing trade to write a very funny book of his own.”
Oline H. Cogdill
“Hall has a slyly delightful time skewering the publishing field and best sellers…Hall probably had as much fun injecting little mystery “traditions” as the reader will have discovering them.”
Publishers Weekly
“Amusing, tongue in cheek … The milieu with all its vagaries proves a ready target for Hall’s well-aimed barbs as he … offers a delightfully accurate account of a bookstore signing.… Hall proves as adept at creating on-page suspense as he is at lampooning it.”
David Pitt
“First-class fun from start to finish.”
