Reviews

"Lachlan Smith does a masterful turn in Fox Is Framed. A sharp-edged legal thriller with the deep emotional undertones of family drama and tragedy."--Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot

"This book never took me where I expected it would. The story is smart, complex, and original . . . The characters got me hooked, the legal story got me to stay, and the originality of the telling stuck with me when I was finished."--Mystery Scene

"The complex family dynamics that Smith explored in his earlier books only become more intriguing in his superlative third Leo Maxwell mystery . . . Smith is masterly in creating realistic courtroom scenes, including the subtleties of witness examination, and, even more impressively, enhances the trial with the human drama of the Smith family."--Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

"Engaging . . . Smith elegantly blends courtroom suspense and family misfortune without ever slipping into melodrama; the line Maxwell family members walk between innocence and guilt becomes more blurred with every step and turn of the page."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Some of the sharpest courtroom cut-and-thrust since Presumed Innocent."--Kirkus Reviews
