Death Prefers Blondes delivers on its promise of a glitzy teen thriller, and I was feeling the fantasy.--NPR.org
Roehrig has given us not just one queer James Bond, but five, each with a unique relationship and pride in their own queerness. And that's not to mention the heists, fights, flirting, drag queens and death defying leaps. Both an outrageous page turned and a treatise on the joy of the queer family.--LC Rosen, author of Jack of Hearts (And Other Parts)
Roehrig creates a vibrant Los Angeles setting, where Manning and her friends are able to flawlessly (for the most part) pull off clever heists, go to fabulous drag shows, and explore their sexualities fully and without much worry or judgment. He's a great, fun writer who delivers with excellent pop culture references, a biting sense of humor, and a feel for emotional resonance.
Margo Manning is a cute blonde heiress who spends her days doing... heiress-y things in California. At night, she's a burglar with four drag queens. NEED I SAY ANYTHING MORE?
--Cosmo Balancing Oceans 11-level heists, corporate espionage, and gender and sexual identity politics isn't easy,
but Roehrig manages it with aplomb, skillfully threading in Hamlet references to boot. Clever, thrilling, and a wildly good time.
