Quotes & Awards

  • “Hillary Huber captures the author’s portrayal of Alberta as a weary, downtrodden yet determined woman. Huber’s narration heightens the listener’s interest and sympathy for the character and her plight…This is classic noir fiction from the author of Rear Window, and Huber’s compelling reading places the listener solidly in time and place.”

    " A solid, old school noir mystery. Excellent writing, although the dialgue is a bit stilted for the modern ear--but no worse than watching an old b@w movie. The first-person female narrator presents in interesting study for feminist readers/writers. "

    " What a great piece of lady-centered noir! (in which the lady is the protagonist, not just the femme fatale.) "

    " Another Cornell Woolrich novel where a woman has to clear her husband from a crime he didn't commit. Sound familiar? It should. "Phantom Lady" was the same book. But it's okay, it's well written and a swell time waster. Just don't expect anything different from Woolrich here. "

    " Loved the evocation of another era--could even imagine the dialogue being spoken with the crisp elocution of the movie stars from that time period. "
