From the Back Cover:

Praise for David Fulmer’s Mysteries "It is Fulmer's achievement, in each of his novels, to have nailed both the city and the music.... Each is a highly personal serenade to America's past." -- The Washington Post
"The sense of place is so palpable you can almost hear the music. Fulmer's writing is crisp and nuanced. His action sequences are as clear as his exposition. Characters are beautifully drawn with just a few words." --Detroit Free Press

"Fulmer brings alive this earlier time with descriptions so lively one can hear the music's wildness and the crowd's bustle."--The Baltimore Sun

"The best part . . . is the writing, the see-it, feel-it, touch-it style that Fulmer uses to wonderful effect . . . It's a wonderful rendition of a particular world as a very distinctive time." --The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)

"Fulmer's dialogue adds its lyric voice to the gutbucket sounds and ragtime rhythms pouring out of the bars and up from the streets." --The New York Times Book Review
