What the Critics Say

"Hughes serves up equal measures of wit, intrigue, and seat-of-the-pants action and even dabbles a little in Jungian psychology." (Booklist)

"Superlative. A droll narrative voice, dry humor, and an alternative universe that's accessible without excessive exposition" (Publishers Weekly)

"A bit Arthur Conan Doyle, a bit Jack Vance...[with] the lasting appeal of one of PG Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster books." (Seattle Times)

    "A Good Story but.."

    ..this reader made me cringe. I finished the audio because it was a good story & I didn't see it in print. There were times it was almost painful to listen. I'll read the author again for sure but the narrator won't get a 2nd chance.
