Reviews

"Bullets, blood, bodies, and belly-laughs: all the ingredients of a classic mystery novel. Stephen Spotswood hard-boils with the best of 'em!"--Alan Bradley, bestselling author of the Flavia de Luce Mystery Series

"Fortune Favors the Dead takes gritty 40s noir, shakes it up, gives it a charming twist, and serves it up with unforgettable style. My new favorite sleuthing duo are Pentecost and Parker, the spiritual sisters of Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. An utterly brilliant debut!"--Deanna Raybourn, author of the Veronica Speedwell Mysteries

"Spotswood's stellar debut puts a modern spin on classic hard-boiled fiction. . . The deep and sensitive characterization of the two protagonists, coupled with rich description and tonally spot-on humor, make this a novel to remember. Spotswood is definitely a writer to watch."--Publishers Weekly *Starred Review*

"Will keep readers engaged from start to finish. . . [Pentecost is] reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. . . A fun whodunit. . . Perfect for a cozy weekend read."--Library Journal

"A sprightly period debut. . . [A] provocative gender-flipping of Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin."--Kirkus Review
