"Stansberry does it with originality, through the freshness of his imagery and the lyricism of his lament for times that change, neighborhoods that grow old, and people who can never find their way home."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Now Stansberry has done it again.... He tells Nick's story in the hard-edged prose it demands. Straight noir, no chaser."
"A murky, moody slice of noir"
"Stansberry enlivens things with an intriguing picture of Italian fascist activity in San Francisco during World War II. He blends his ingredients with panache."
