A cold and gripping crime novel that could have been written in 1940
Globe and Mail
Tough-talking, hard-drinking Candace Starr’s appealingly amoral worldview coupled with her vast range of eccentric acquaintances and family is sure to provide more murderous fun as the series develops.
O’Cinneide gets this quirky series off to a fine start, and Candace is just the kind of oddly charismatic character to keep it going in high style.
A tough, deadly type who just might surprise you.
Scalding, irreverent, endlessly surprising — Candace Starr will make you laugh out loud while knocking your morality just slightly askew. A dazzling newcomer to the crime fiction scene.
R.M. Greenaway, author of the B.C. Blues Crime series
Darkly hilarious and brilliantly plotted.
