Reviews

One of those rare debuts that absolutely wowed me. Exhilarating and atmospheric, perfectly capturing a post-war Paris where people of all types could drown their sorrows and become someone else, even if it's just for a while. Lunney successfully combines mainstream mystery with spy intrigue, making for an intoxicating concoction, and Kiki is a powerful tour guide. If you like unusual heroines that are the perfect mix of moxie and vulnerability, you can't go wrong with this one. I can't wait for more adventures with the fascinating Kiki Button and her singular world.
Fascinating characters, beautifully written.--Kate Williams, New York Times bestselling author of 'Becoming Queen Victoria'
Lunney's vibrant picture of Paris, chock-full of flapper fashion and cameos of the Lost Generation, will leave readers eager for more.
Button is naughtier than Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher, as strong as Suzanne Arruda's Jade del Cameron, and every bit as clever as Susan Elia MacNeal's Maggie Hope. This thoroughly entertaining, delightfully witty debut is imbued with Paris' unique ambiance and will have readers eagerly awaiting Button's next adventure.
An atmospheric, verbose historical novel that foreshadows the next war while reveling in the debauched bohemianism of Paris between the wars. Spying is just part of the excitement.
An irresistible debut! Adventurous and whip-smart, Kiki Button is Jazz Age Paris's most dazzling ex-pat.--David Krugler, author of 'The Dead Don't Bleed'
What a deliciously decadent story!
