“Dr. Siri and his misfit friends have relied on caustic humor to stay sane…The question is: Can his cynical sense of humor get him out of this jam?” New York Times Book Review
“Always delightful…the doctor and his profoundly eccentric friends, wife and (now former) colleagues retain their sardonic senses of humor in a vexing and sometimes scary time.” Seattle Times
“Neatly combines humor, detection, and politics.” Publishers Weekly
“Dr. Siri’s iconoclastic spirit and caustic wit are a delight to witness.” Booklist
