From Booklist:

Imagine yourself at a party, having had a few too many and leaning out from a balcony to talk to your brother, who insists on minding your business, on the street below--and waking up, arm in a cast, in a mental hospital. A fellow patient introduces herself, solemnly intoning that she carries death, which smells like asparagus, within her privates, and a cute young guy, another patient, befriends you. How cute? So cute that the 72 hours spent under observation aren't at all bad. Well, except for the murders your new friend is accused of, but if you are going to pick every little nit . . . . In Moore's engaging, fast-moving tale, brotherly hate crosses paths with gay love on the run because the love interest is the object of police attention for his unfortunate habit of propinquity to homicide. Witty, intelligent dialogue and characters distract the reader from the darker side of a situation whose uglier tones cast a pall over a facile ending. A promising debut. Whitney Scott
