Reviews

"Scary and satisfying ...I loved this novel....Lappin's people are as dangerously compelling as her Italy." -Nina Auerbach, author of Our Vampires, Ourselves *****amazon reviews

"Readers looking for an intelligent summer mystery will find much to savor here." -Wilda Williams, Library Journal

"Written in an elegant, relaxed style, with a plot that peels back slowly, the book bewitches..." -Mystery Scene Magazine

"Lappin is a modern day Agatha Christie with prose that is like eating dark chocolate or sipping a glass of fine wine - the story continues to entice your senses and simply gets better and better the more you partake." -I Love a Mystery

"Recommended!" -Midwest Book Review

"Linda Lappin's Signatures in Stone boasts a remarkable knitting of mystery and romance, a delicate and intricately concocted layering of mysteries." -Gently Read

"Lappin has populated a dilapidated villa and its adjacent park of grotesque sculptures with a vivid group of victims and suspects who turn out to be mysteries in themselves, While the primary pleasures of Signatures in Stone are its places and its people, the story itself satisfies because its twists are engrained in the chasms of its setting and its characters." -Walter Cummins, Rain Taxi
