Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rewarding…May offers a little politics, a little romance, and a lot of autopsy details.” Publishers Weekly
“Li and Campbell’s fine third case provides thrills, chills, and a window into current Chinese lifestyles.” Kirkus Reviews
“Margaret’s expertise is made more use of in this book than hitherto, and those who like discoveries from the mortuary slab will find this outing particularly satisfying. The urgency to find the culprit, the frustrations of the task, and the romantic entanglements mean that, as with earlier books in the series, there is barely a dull moment as the book rushes to an exciting conclusion.” Crime Review
“The Killing Room is a brisk, solidly plotted police procedural, with lots of gritty forensic details.” Mystery Scene Magazine
