Praise for Linda Barnes and Carlotta Carlyle:
"With every novel, Linda Barnes reminds us of two key facts--she was one of the first and she remains one of the best. Heart of the World has everything that Carlotta Carlyle fans have come to expect from this seminal series. Barnes has never been better, and that's saying a lot."
--Laura Lippman, author of To the Power of Three
"Linda Barnes has long been one of the most skilled and artful writers of the crime novel. With Heart of the World she proves it and takes it up to a new level. This is her best."
--Michael Connelly, author of The Lincoln Lawyer
"Heart of the World illuminates the power of our deepest regrets and the fleeting chances we sometimes get to fill the emptiness in our souls. Writing with sensitivity and grace, Linda Barnes once more demonstrates why ex-cop Carlotta Carlyle has become a treasured mainstay in the field of crime fiction."
--Robert Crais, author of The Forgotten Man
"An astonishing installment in what was already one of the best private-eye series ever."
--Harlan Coben, author of The Innocent on Heart of the World
"Nobody knows Boston like Linda Barnes's red-haired private investigator Carlotta Carlyle... Barnes's knack for crisp, snappy dialogue and devising a mystery that has both timeless and contemporary appeal is a winner."
--The Boston Herald
"The savviest, most spirited of three-dimensional heroines."
"It's always a pleasure to spend time with this zesty detective... Carlotta has class and spirit to spare..."
--The Baltimore Sun
