“… a beautifully-written, intricately-plotted classic whodunnit with a heroine (Lavender “call-me-Lew” Lewis) unlike any I’ve encountered…” Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity-award winning novelist

“The characters are amazingly well developed and I love the main protagonist, Lavender “Lew” Lewis – a cranky woman yet funny and clever with it, a woman you will enjoy getting to know.
