"Matches the staccato pace and quick rhythms of the finest detective novels....spices up the genre with sharp commentary on the fashions and home decor of L.A.'s trendy, wealthy denizens. Claire's a bankable character; her most endearing quality is her ability to rebound from disappointment. Plus, much like the cast of Charlie's Angels, this heroine always looks fabulous in the face of danger. Crisp writing and clever characters make this updated debut crime novel a winner."
- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"An entertaining trip.... As first novels go, this is a keeper."
- Library Journal
"Sassy investigator Claire Fontaine's stilettos are made for skipping over the objections of her unwilling and unstylish partner, who provides the comic yang to her yin."
- Ellen Byerrum, author of the Lacey Smithsonian Crime of Fashion mysteries
"Claire Fontaine, a rich, sophisticated young woman, and Henry Bennett, a sloppy, middle-aged ex-cop, put a fun new spin on the terms 'odd couple' and 'gumshoes,' as they hit the mean streets of L.A. to solve crimes."
- Dolores Johnson, author of Taken to the Cleaners and Pressed to Kill
