Praise for Out of the Deep I Cry

"The third and most densely textured mystery in a series by Julia Spencer-Fleming that brings new airs and graces to the traditional small-town mystery...the rich heritage of this Adirondack Mountain region also gives depth and complexity to the crimes that the well-matched pair must solve together...yes, this is a very small town, but under Spencer-Fleming's grave and tender touch it becomes a world that you want to visit and hate to leave."-The New York Times Book Review

"One of the great pleasures in a mystery reviewer's life is watching a promising series take root and blossom into something strong and unusual. Out of the Deep I Cry...is a perfect example."-Baltimore Sun

"Early spring in the Adirondacks is vividly described in this third installment in the series, and both the main and secondary characters are well developed...a comfortable mix of police procedural and village cozy."-Booklist
