Reviews

Notable particularly for its vivid sense of place in modern Singapore.--Booklist
Hozy's luscious prose makes this literary stand-alone a memorable read. Her talent for juggling multiple narrators (alternating between the present and 1920s Singapore) and interspersing with clue-laden short stories is impressive. Leisurely paced, it has tremendous crossover potential for non-mystery readers who favor classic tales such as those of W. Somerset Maugham.--Library Journal
Hozy's third mystery is a magnificent combination of two stories a century apart. ...Hozy skillfully transports readers between the two centuries and builds suspense with questions of who can be trusted.--Publishers Weekly
What elevates The Scarlet Macaw from most other mysteries is its fervent grasp of the power of stories, and how important they are in providing a sense of self.--National Post
