What the Critics Say

"Diamond remains one of the most realistic and human of fictional sleuths....While some readers will anticipate the solution with little trouble, sharp prose and characterization make this another winner in this enduring series." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Skeleton Hill"

    Once I adjusted to the new reader I did enjoy the
    story. Most unusual ending.
