Review:

"A. E. Maxwell wrote one of the smartest, most consistent PI series in recent memory. Big plots, great villains, and a kickass private eye with plenty of humanity. The toughness of Robert B. Parker's early Spenser novels blended with the wry humor and scope of Ross Thomas. Wholly original, endlessly entertaining. The books of A. E. Maxwell are a forgotten treasure." --Tim Maleeny, best-selling author of Greasing the Pinata

"Maxwell is good, really good, able to create believable, engaging, and original characters and set them plausibly into a story of nonstop suspense." --Chicago Sun-Times

"The writing is lean and restrained, and Fiddler... gives Travis McGee a real run for his money." --Los Angeles Times
