"Cheryl Kaye Tardif has become my favorite Canadian writer with this series and other books. Character and scenario building is always excellent. The villains are never easy to catch or figure out. A bit of humor sprinkled throughout is always a respite from the tension of the chase to find the killer before another victim falls...Ms. Tardif helps her characters take it all in stride while weaving us through a maze of false trails leading up to an always exciting finale...Tardif draws us into the tale both emotionally and mentally as we try to figure out who does the nasty deeds before she tells us. This is some of the best suspense writing around."
