Reviews

"A highly entertaining tale and one of the best portraits of a working reporter since Michael Connelly's The Poet." --The Washington Post

"What makes Parks such a fantastic storyteller is his main cast of characters, all of whom feel real. Parks has quietly entered the top echelon of the mystery field." --RT Book Reviews (Top Pick! 4 1/2 stars)

"Expect a complicated, thrilling ending with a splash of mayhem. Parks, a gifted storyteller (with shades of Mark Twain or maybe Dave Barry), shows his mastery of the comic absurd behind serious journalism." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Muckraking has rarely been so meaty or so funny." --Kirkus (starred review)

"Engaging...Parks smoothly blends grit and wit." --Publishers Weekly
