"Rereading the out-of-print Rhode Island Red twenty-one years after it was published, I was struck with how perfectly Carter captured pre-gentrification New York City, when young artists could still afford to live by themselves in Manhattan, dive bars thrived, and interlopers weren't walking on the wrong side of the sidewalks with their dogs and baby carriages."
-- Michael Gonzales, CrimeReads

"The sweet, clear sound of Nanette's musical voice keeps us on her corner, tossing all the change we've got."
--The New York Times

"A terrific novel, from those witty, subversive openingsentences, to the edgy, melancholy and very satisfyingending."
--Margo Jefferson, author of Negroland

"Carter's characters rarely do what one might expect. Reading her work just gives you a jolt."
--Catapult Magazine

"Nanette Hayes may be the most charismatic crime fiction heroine to appear in the last decade."

"Style's the thing in this breezy, sexy mystery."
--Publishers Weekly

"The inauguration of a promising new series."
-- Crimereads
