“That’s a lot of plot elements, but Webb juggles them effectively, showing how private detectives must move seamlessly from one case to another and back again. This is a complex, exciting entry in a first-class series, and it makes an excellent read-alike for Sue Grafton fans.” –Booklist starred review
“Readers will need a strong stomach as Webb lays out the details of polygamy and cult life in this fast-paced sixth series entry that will appeal to readers who enjoy gritty Southwestern mysteries. No one writes quite like she does.” –Library Journal starred review“Clear-cut characterizations help a complicated plot flow smoothly. As Webb points out in a note, polygamy still spawns many social ills, despite the recent, well-publicized conviction of Mormon fundamentalist prophet Warren Jeffs.” –Publishers Weekly
