Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book is beautifully written in a tight, quirky style that distinguishes Gran as one of the more original writers working today.” Associated Press
“Delicious and addictive.” Salon
“With Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead, Gran elevates the detective story as literature and brings together a sophisticated mystery, a witty, antagonistic private eye, and a city she knows too well.” Atlantic Monthly
“This is not to be missed—Claire is a moody, hip, and meticulous investigator. Gran builds an addictive sense of anticipation with a fantastical frame. Alternately gritty and dreamy, this would appeal to those who liked Colson Whitehead’s The Intuitionist and readers of Charlie Huston.” Library Journal (starred review)
