Reviews
An arresting and elegant meditation on guilt and innocence and the inscrutability of human behavior.

Philadelphia "Inquirer"
Bland Simpson conveys images for all senses and his characters are powerful and authentic. The story is a haunting one.

"Mostly Murder"
"Haunting and elegiac as a folk ballad, the voices intertwine . . . in a blend of tragic mystery and raw pain.

Margaret Maron, author of "Bootlegger's Daughter""
"Bland Simpson brings a whole culture brilliantly to life . . . with wonderful dialogue and real, page-turning suspense.

Lee Smith, author of "The Devil's Dream""
"Simpson persuasively re-creates the decorously frenzied, boomtown atmosphere of turn-of-the-century Elizabeth City in the grip of a tabloid mystery.
