"[The Mary Russell series is] the most sustained feat of imagination in mystery fiction today."--Lee Child

"[Laurie R.] King's storytelling is always a pleasure, full of lush details and clever twists. Cole Porter, who is an integral part of the book's LGBTQ story line, adds an unexpected and welcome star turn."--Booklist

"Well-plotted . . . This ranks as one of the better recent installments in this popular series."--Publishers Weekly
