Moss spins a mystery that sparkles with dynamic setting with vivid pictures, resonant insights and a spin on mystery storytelling that is as multilayered as it is beautiful, Moss teases us down the path to resolution. Still Waters is a mystery told by a storyteller par excellence and is not to be missed.
Hamilton Spectator, The
Mosses' writing is as lush as the Canadian fall setting and as exotic as the Koi themselves. The book is brimming with imagery and he writes wonderfully clever dialogues between Quin and Morgan. They put me in mind of Reginald Hill's Daziel and Pascoe, or perhaps the clever cocktail commentary of Hammett's Thin Man duo, Nick and Nora Charles ... I look forward to another Quin and Morgan mystery ...
Reviewing the Evidence
Moss skillfully enlarges his story to make it more than a murder mystery: it is a life mystery .... This too is a powerful novel.
Star Phoenix, The
The novel is at once playfully intellectual and grittily realistic.
