Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Social turmoil overshadows the sleuthing in Gorman’s excellent ninth Sam McCain mystery…The real crime, as Sam eventually realizes, is how one generation exploits the next—while the younger generation devours itself. In turn mellow and melancholy, this book grapples with problems that are too complex for any detective to untangle.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Gorman, as he has done so well throughout this series, vividly captures the era…[with] a rich background for a cleverly plotted, fast-paced mystery.” Booklist
“Read this installment, like all the others for the pop-historical detail and the loving evocation of small-town America.” Kirkus Reviews
“The kind of hero any small town could take to its heart.” New York Times, praise for the series
