"The smidgen of mystery will be just enough for the faithful already queued up for this mild silver anniversary for Braun." Kirkus Reviews
"As usual, the mild mystery...takes a backseat to the pleasure of simply spending time in the company of dry, witty Quilleran, his clever cats Yum-Yum and Koko and his eccentric friends and neighbors." Publishers Weekly
"This is the twenty-fifth volume of these intensely mild-mannered mysteries: it is hard to conceive of a more dulcet whodunit....How can one fail to be amused by naming conventions that include local weatherman Wetherby Goode?" GraceAnne DeCandido, Booklist
"A master of mystery." People
