    " Alexander was unprepared, unrehearsed, and repetitive. Nonetheless, the message managed to work its way through the garbled delivery. "

    " I enjoyed this and found several new series to read, but I felt like it was more like a survey course of what's out there than an actual discussion of the literature. "

    " A very thoughtful and thorough overview of the many styles of detective fiction. Many references to authors and significant works within the sub-genres. "
