Reviews
"From the first sentence, this book was a delight. Filomena is smart and sassy, and totally believable. . . . She's the superwoman we women would all like to be, taking everything in her stride. . . ." --Marsali Taylor, promotingcrime.blogspot.co.uk
"Filomena Buscarsela [is] a Latina heroine with the epic appeal of Everywoman. The world's a mess, but Filomena's still fighting. It's that perspective that sets Wishnia apart--there's nothing else out there remotely like his books." --Rocky Mountain News
"Wishnia writes with brio, energy, rage, passion, and humor. Brash, sassy, smart and indomitable, Filomena is purely a force of nature, and The Glass Factory is another winner." --Booklist
"Riveting circumstances, a strongly focused plot, and ably described settings make this essential reading." --Library Journal
"Mother and daughter are so appealing, and the case against an unscrupulous businessman is put together so compellingly, the tale keeps one reading to its bittersweet end." --Boston Globe
"Filomena Buscarsela [is] an irreverent, intrepid, Ecuadorian-born, former New York City cop with the savvy of Erin Brockovich and the stamina of Wonder Woman." --Newsday
