Reviews

"Loyalty's Fina Ludlow is my hero. If I were in a bad spot, I'd want her at my back. Don't miss it."--Catherine Coulter, # 1 New York Times bestselling author

"In her debut novel, Ingrid Thoft gives us Fina Ludlow, the newest private eye to prowl Boston's mean streets. Fina returns the female detective to the heart of the hard-boiled tradition: hard-drinking, hard-loving, moody. Writer Ingrid Thoft has given her a dysfunctional extended family that rivals the Ewings of Dallas fame, which adds a dimension not often seen in the PI novel."--Sara Paretsky, New York Times bestselling author

"Loyalty, Ingrid Thoft's strong debut, is gripping, and Fina Ludlow, the black sheep of her male-dominated family of ambulance chasers, elevates it to a must-read. A seductive combination of sass and smarts, Fina reminds us just how hard it is for women in a male-dominated world without ever giving an inch. Loyalty reminds me just how great a PI novel can be. This is the start of something big."--Ridley Pearson, New York Times bestselling author

"What starts, in Thoft's dazzling first novel, as a missing-persons case for Boston PI Fina Ludlow--the search for her sister-in-law, Melanie--swells through layers of familial secrets, lies, and betrayals to something approaching Greek tragedy....Readers will be eager to see more of smash-mouth Fina, a hard-boiled throwback equally comfortable shooting from the hip or the lip."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Thoft's promising debut introduces a significantly flawed but tough new PI and offers up compelling suspense, while the smooth prose keeps things moving right along....This mystery wrapped in family drama should please fans of contemporary suspense of the more hard-boiled sort."
-- Library Journal

"(Fina) Ludlow has the shrewdness of her parents and siblings but she has compassion, too. Fans of the Kinsey Millhone mysteries will enjoy this engaging debut."
-- Booklist
