    " Despite the Cather and Wallace Stevens references, and the sly nod to a Keller story, this may be the first time I came away from a Scudder novel feeling a little underwhelmed. "

    " 3.5 stars. This was a book that involved three murder mysteries, which they referred to as the "hat-trick". I guessed the "whodunit" around the main murder plot before it was revealed, but that didn't take any enjoyment out of reading it. "

    " Not one of his better ones. Probably the least Scudder-like of the series. "
