"Spieled in a powerful, streamlined voice, this wrenching American noir will stick with readers long after the final page."-- "Booklist"
"Mosley delivers enough good stuff to let you know a master's at work."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Mosley's sixth Leonid McGill PI novel is so short, it almost seems like a throwaway. It's not. This gifted raconteur of the African American experience has produced an absorbing noir beauty of a tale about a ninetyfour-year-old Mississippi bluesman, aptly named Philip 'Catfish' Worry, bent on a good deed that could get him killed. He hires McGill."-- "Washington Post"
"Gritty...The plot soars...Few mystery writers can examine issues of race--how it divides and binds people--as clearly and unflinchingly as Walter Mosley."-- "Associated Press"
"Dion Graham offers an amazing performance...Graham delivers Mosley's noir mystery with his usual excellence, giving each character an individual personality. His women are always respectfully treated, never stereotypes, while his gangsters are frighteningly real. With his mastery of dialects and tone, Graham delivers suspense best listened to. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award."-- "AudioFile"
