“Haddam does what so many other writers fail to do: tell a story that challenges its readers…[In Living Witness,] the author offers her typically razor-sharp mystery concerning a highly contentious issue, but also does so without taking sides, treating all of her characters ... with respect and understanding. Haddam is a fine writer, exhibiting skills rarely glimpsed in the mystery genre.”—Booklist (starred review)
“Edgar-finalist Haddam's excellent novel takes a nuanced look at the debate over teaching evolution in public schools… Haddam makes characters on both sides of the issue sympathetic, explores the inner life of her detective hero—and offers an ingenious fair-play puzzle.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
JANE HADDAM, finalist for both the Edgar and the Anthony Awards, is the author of over twenty novels. She lives in Litchfield County, Connecticut.
