Praise for City of Secrets

"The historical details shine in this perfectly drawn mystery.... This shows how historical mystery can not only re-create the sights but also the atmosphere of the time."
--RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)
 
"Stanley's brittle prose and period touches effectively capture the feeling of ’40s noir."
--Kirkus Reviews
 
"In best pulp fiction style, suspects lounge about with slick hair and cheap suits, blondes are chain-smoking broads, and the nightclubs are smoky and languid."
--Publishers Weekly
 
"Engrossing.... Stanley brings 1940s San Francisco to life with her meticulously detailed, hard-boiled novel."
--Library Journal
