Praise for The Principal Cause of Death

"The plot moves at a fast enough pace to satisfy even the most impatient murder-mystery fan. A delightful book that'll bring readers back, wanting other Zubro sleuthers."--Booklist

"Zubro deserves praise across the board. His characters are believable, the plotting is intricate and taut, the Chicago-land locations and personalities are very convincing. We look forward to future works by Mr. Zubro."--Gay Chicago Magazine

"Zubro is certainly one of the best, perhaps comparable only to Joseph Hansen in his appeal."--The Purloined Letter

"Chicago itself comes alive...Zubro takes the mystery genre farther than you might expect."--Lambda Rising Book Report

"Zubro's blend of personal and political concerns makes this story compelling and even urgent."--Publishers Weekly, on Sorry Now?
