Editorial Reviews

Nora Reviewer
Titchener has hit a home run with witty, tough, and thoroughly likable Toni Credella. I'll be anxiously awaiting her next adventure. 5 beacons
Mayra Calvani
Written with a sharp, no-nonsense language and a touch of wit, this is the perfect book for readers who love light, past-paced mysteries. Toni is a very sympathetic character and her relationship with Sergeant Gus O'Dell brings a refreshing romantic air to the story without overwhelming the mystery. Titchener's book is a great addition to her Toni Credella series.
Karen Treanor
This was an enjoyable read and I recommend it to mystery fans who like a tenacious but vulnerable heroine.
Mary Ann Smyth
I can always count on Louise Titchener to provide a good, rousing read. She's done it again with Bumped Off in Baltimore. This is a fast moving book with lots of action and many threads that seem to dangle in mid-air until the author skillfully weaves them all together to produce a bang-up climax. I love the finely drawn characters I can visualize Daddy pouring on the charm in the front of the restaurant while berating Mama in the kitchen if all is not ready to his schedule.
Susan Reviewer
The style is reminiscent of Robert B. Parker in his Spenser for Hire series with lots of short choppy dialogue and short scenes. While the story starts slowly, it picks up steam and toward the end, I couldn't put it down. I was pleasantly surprised how the pieces fit together and happy that I hadn't figured out the ending.
