Reviews

Praise for Faithful Unto Death

“Barnaby applies his logical mind to the many false clues in this cunning case, but it takes all his acquired insights into human psychology to distinguish the killer from all the other cuckoo characters who live and thrive in the mad, mad world of Fawcett Green.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Simply the best detective writer since Agatha Christie.” —The Sunday Times of London

“Satisfies on every level: wicked humor, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp characterizations.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
