    " 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 [email protected] 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. "

    " An unbelievable plot is okay in a good mystery. However, an unbelievable plot paired with a completely unbelievable main character is unforgivable. "
