Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lawrence, in doing a very modern justice to this nineteenth-century misfit, is being the kind of detective all good authors can be.” New York Times Book Review
“Energetic, vividly written…this agile story should keep readers’ attention from first page to last.” Publishers Weekly
“Wonderfully dry humor, vivid sensory description of the mountain tow, and a genuinely appealing protagonist make this a stand-out…[A] highly entertaining, swashbuckling series debut.” Kirkus Reviews
