REVIEWS

Praise for Another Dead Teenager

"Besides creating captivating police work and strong storytelling elements, Zubro possesses an ability to write about details like few authors I've encountered. Another Dead Teenager is a fine way to spend a night inside witha good book." --Lavender Lifestyles

"As in Zubro's previous books, readers have both campy humor and an action filled plot to keep them entertained. Highly recommended--this one's a good read in every sense of the term!" --Booklist (on An Echo of Death)

"An Echo of Death is a breathless, headlong hurtle through a complex maze of danger and deciet. Like a master magician, the author never allows the reader an instant for reflection, providing instead constant and entertaining diversion....A stellar accomplishment." --The Clarion Ledger (Jackson, Mississippi)

"Sorry Now? is a fast-moving, Chicago based police procedural. Zubro's blend of personal and political concerns makes this story compelling and even urgent." --Publishers Weekly

"Zubro is certainly one of the best, perhaps comparable only to Joseph Hansen in his appeal." --The Purloined Letter (on Sorry Now?)

"Chicago itself comes alive...Zubro takes the mystery genre farther than you might expect."
--Lambda Rising Book Report (on The Only Good Priest)
