"Irving has produced not just fine detective fiction, but fine fiction:  he has an enviable artist’s eye for details both mundane and macabre.  The Joth Proctor Fixer series reader has a real sense of being there, even when no sensible reader would want to be there. "

- Raymond Smith, Professor of English, Indiana University
