Media Reviews

"Eversz hits the jackpot in his fifth Nina Zero mystery.... This compelling, nerve-wracking, draining novel will leave readers hungry for the next in the series." - Publishers Weekly.

"Nina's addictive escapades (Digging James Dean, 2005, etc.) grow in depth and complexity, with mystery on the side." - Kirkus Reviews.
